On this page we list various articles I've written, just to see how folk will respond. As with the Heroes List page, you can find them by using either the drop-down list above, or clicking on the titles presented below.
- The Dixie Chicks - Once Upon A Time
When the Dixie Chicks first started, there were four. And they sang songs like "Thank Heavens for Dale Evans!" I was privileged to meet them more than once, and here is a bit of that story.
- Hockey's Labor Dispute
In 2004, the NHL had a labor dispute, and I was fortunate to discuss a few things with the likes of Sports Writer Mike Heika. He then wrote for the Dallas Morning News, but is now working strictly for the Dallas Stars hockey team. I hope you enjoy the exchange.
- Lisa's Responses to 9-11
When 9-11 hit, my Internet friend Lisa lived near the destruction, and lost many of her friends due to that attack. She had a blog at the time, and we exchanged Emails, and the combination of the two are presented on this page. I keep this tribute on the HeroesWest site lest anyone forget or minimize the terrific suffering which took place as a result of that invasion.
- Patriotic Pictures that Seldom Make the News
Back when I was using America Online, I would get links to patriotic type photos from various people in my Email. These struck me as rather poignant, and so I present a page in honor of their tenderness.
- Was Iraq Good Strategy?
I am a fan of Military History, and it kept nagging at me that there might be a strategy to our involvement with Iraq that hasn't been discussed on network news. Here is my attempt to share, from my reading, what may have been involved.
- WMD Photos and Quotes
In yet another set of Emails from back in the days of America Online, I received very interesting photos and quotes on the subject of Weapons of Mass Destruction. I trust you will find them at least a bit of food for thought.
