An AP story dated May 31, 2011 outlines how the American company Chiquita, one of the largest sellers of bananas, is the subject of lawsuits listing more than 4,000 civilian vicitms, killed in the dirty war which raged in Colombia for years.
Chiquita plead guilty in 2007 to charges brought by the U.S, Justice Department for paying off the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known by its Spanish acronym, FARC. The company paid a $25 million fine.
In later years FARC was pushed out of the picture by the AUC, a Spanish acronym for the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia.

Sarah Palin says her bus tour is to educate all of us barbarians about our "history." Today she informed those of us who don't know our history about the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Here is what she said:

" He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed."

My First Novel Is Now Available On Amazon.

My new novel, The Case of the Grave Accusation, is now listed on Amazon, both in the U.S. and the UK. I am very excited to see my first book in print. The book will be released on June 27 and is now available for pre-orders.
This is a Sherlock Holmes pastiche about Holmes and Watson traveling to the present day to investigate an author who claims that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had plagiarized the Hound of the Baskervilles from a friend, murdered him and committed adultery with his wife! Well! When I heard about this I thought "This is a case for Sherlock Holmes!" Thus came the idea for the story.
The publisher is MX Publishing of London. This company has a large line of Holmsian pastiches and other works. One of their leading authors and Holmes experts, Paul R, Spiring, edited the book and added a section to the book which expands on the actual case which inspired my fiction. I hope Holmes fans and everyone else will enjoy the book.
I am so encouraged I have returned to another novel I have been working on which has been languishing lately.
