Robert Sherrill, a self-described “independent radical” journalist who brought an acerbic, at times polemical, wit to books about political leaders including Lyndon B. Johnson and Edward Kennedy, to topics such as military judicial abuses, and to moneyed interests like Big Oil and the gun industry, died Aug. 19 in Tallahassee. He was 89.

‘Painted Horses,’ by Malcolm Brooks

In Malcolm Brooks’s first novel, it is 1956 or thereabouts. Elvis Presley is “this new singer,” and “Blackboard Jungle” is playing at the movie theater in Billings, Mont.

Why I've been absent in recent months

Friends, this is hard for me to post about so bear with me. I know it's been a while since I've been around and I want to explain it here so I don't have to do it over and over again. This way I can just point to this post.

Thank You for your welcome! I like mysteries and thrillers. I enjoy watching crime television, its interesting to see how cases are sold. And also what types of things can cause a case to go unsolved. Real stories and the entertainment shows as well. How about you?
