Here is an interesting story regarding someone who is using the new ebook publishing format to get their writing out to a mass audience, and make a lot of money.  I do think this is the wave of the future.

The last week has been busy and I’ve not been able to post daily, as is my goal.  Normal posting will resume today and hopefully, going forward there will be at least one new post every day.

The government abusing the legal system

This is a terrible injustice.  U.S. Attorneys and the courts should not be trying to silence people who simply disagree with the current system, no matter how irritating they are.  The Supreme Court should have taken up the appeal.

I want to do figures. I think they are cool. Sadly, though I have tried several times, the only thing I have ever finished was a 200mm bust.  I’ve been working on this figure, a 54mm Revolutionary war figure for a couple of years. I need to get back to it.

P.S.  I posted this post from my EVO phone using the WordPress app.  Worked like a charm.  I wouldn’t want to type every post that way, but it is a nice feature to have.
