“One-Hundred and Counting!”

This is my 100th article published on Huffington Post.

*********************

It hasn’t been 100 days, or 100 years, or even 100 victories.

But each one has been a victory even though it’s not tied to seasons, or sobriety, or jail time. It’s not historical or record breaking, but each is painstakenly researched, often prescient, generally significant, and usually relevant.

Both mixtures have deadly implications and deserve scrutiny wherever and whenever these elements are combined.

Though W.C. Fields once joked, “They say gasoline and alcohol don’t mix…actually, they do, they just don’t taste good,” the combination of gun powder and testosterone is no joking matter. Neither is the current combination of powerful weaponry and over stimulated and paranoid males.
