End Piracy not Liberty - stop SOPA
As a writer and designer, stopping online piracy is very important to me. Based on the information I've seen about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) bill and the Protect IP Act (PIPA), they are NOT the right bills to combat this problem. is now twittering. I hope this will enhance the experience.

What Is Almost CoherentTM?

It's the name of my column.
It good naturedly describes my work.
It's the name of my Web Site.
It's how I feel a lot of the time.
It's a catchy name I used when I first had my local paper column.

What you will find here are mostly humorous, sometimes political or serious articles. Thanks for visiting. Topics will cover the gamut from ding-dongs, to PMS tablets, to current events, to pregnancy tests, and so on. I'm not sure what kind of gamut that is but a gamut none the less.

I'll be posting brand new pieces along with my dusty archives. I suppose an on-line portfolio is better than a box of unclipped clippings sitting in the back of a closet. And borrowing from one of the major network's promotion of re-run programming: If you haven't seen it, it's new to you. So please read on and enjoy. Visit frequently for new postings.

Just in case you don't know: No portion of this Site may be used or duplicated, re-printed, or distributed in anyway without permission.

Now that the formalities are over with click on... I hope you have a chuckle on me.

A quick Site use guide: Read First is where announcements and this introduction will be, Articles gets you to the articles, and Contact is how you contact me.

Please go to Articles for a complete list of all articles.

I know that if you feel strongly, good or bad, about a piece you'll let me know. I always like feedback. Sometimes I'm amazed at it, other times perplexed by it. The fact that something I write gets you to the point you write about it, is in itself a wondrous thing. If you're a publisher or agent don't you be shy now.
