My Mission Statement
I write to serve, to unite, to educate. I write to share literature and flesh out ideas that may be of interest to others. I write to document an emotion, experience, or a blip in time. My mission is to write in such a way that the reader is reminded that we can find humor in all situations. It's one of the great blessings of life.

My Economic Theory
The demise of the American economic system is a sad situation. We are struggling as a country, a nation and even as a global economy. There's not a neighborhood in the United States without a person in trouble, in pain, and hurt by this fallen economy. And why? What has been the impetus for such a crash? What brought this on? Well, I have a theory. The fall of the American economy is due to one thing, it has to be, and that one thing is Crackbook, er, Facebook. Banks are issuing flawed loan packages because loan officers have one eye on their list of friends. The situation skewed out of control because millions of people were too busy taking quizzes about what state they were or designing Zwinkies. Formerly honest, hard-working Americans are failing their country to reconnect with old friends, a noble concept to be sure, but are we willing to pay $5 a gallon for gas, just so we can have our Facebook? Now I've only been a part of this strange subculture for one day, so I can't say for sure. But my guess is that if we asked Facebookians to disconnect for the good of the American economic system, their children's college fund, and the health care of their parents, they'd say no. So, John Edwards, when do the lawsuits begin? Because this is ten times for addictive than any cigarette I've ever smoked.
