Today’s Gun Control Story: Law Abiding Citizen

Some folks wonder what keeps me so busy… here’s one thing.  I’m part of a community of authors producing short stories on a regular basis.  These stories are often inspired by things I’ve been thinking about. Today, completely coincidentally–honest!–I have released a short story called Law Abiding Citizen that ties in a bit with Obama’s […]

“Anthony Horvath Goes To Heaven” Short Story Added to Dawkins, Flew, and Teresa Collection

heavenstories_thumb

I have now updated the collection with a foreword and two new short stories. Each of the two new stories is called “Anthony Horvath Goes to Heaven.” These two stories also have introductions. You’ll understand the similar titles after you get the series, but suffice it to say that they are written as a response to some criticisms about the fairness in contemplating the eternal fates of others, but not oneself.

No Lawsuit Against PZ Myers is Forthcoming

heavenstories_thumb

It is not my purpose to ‘litigate’ this matter in this post. It is my desire to get this out in the open. PZ Myers is a professor for a tax-payer supported state university in Minnesota, and as a putative academic, one expects a certain level of professionalism and integrity. I have decided that I, personally, should not pursue this further. As a citizen of the United States, I have the right to protect myself under the law. As a citizen of another Country, I have to conduct myself under different laws, and I have decided that this particular one falls under ‘do not resist an evil person.’

Bubblegum and Suckers a short children’s story for adults

Bubblegum and Suckers

A Children’s Book for Adults

(Illustrations to come?)

Copyright 2010, Anthony Horvath, All Rights Reserved

I originally wrote this almost a full year ago but it seems to remain relevant and even though the ‘Father’ alluded to in the last paragraphs is drawing closer (ie, the last election), it is my view that he has not yet quite arrived.

Bubblegum and suckers, fudge and cookies for all! This among other things was their rallying cry and no one can cry louder than seven and eight year olds deprived of supper and sleep. A sleepy populace heeded their call and thought that a little youthful vigor might be just what the country needed. A fresh wind to blow on stale and intractable issues was needed and every other sort had been tried: but not children. Not, that is, until now.

Short Story: Mother Teresa Goes to Heaven

This short story was inspired by this article at Time, here. I blogged on that article here: “Mother Teresa had moments of doubt?“ “It is not enough to save you.” Teresa heard the words with horror. She had heard the entire conversation and she trembled throughout it. Each utterance was burned into her mind so […]
