Enjoying Southland — a gritty LA cops/detectives TV series. They dramatize each episode to the max, but there’s a strong realism about the show. As I say, gritty. LA has to be a very difficult place to be a cop.
Despite their recent bad press, I’m very pro-police. I think they are heroes — keeping the rest of us from turning into savages.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
