Tired but writing...

Good evening one and all... I am at home writing for my Traveller campaign, and getting a start on a novella. This story will be dear to my heart.It is a look at a future where we have lost basically all of our civil liberties, and corporations control our food, our media, our politicians. Doesn't sound far off from what we have now!

But anyhow, I am re-committing myself to supporting local businesses. You will soon see more restaurant reviews/shout-outs here. Why am I excited about turning my back on some major corporations? Well, one is the recent expression of blatant and outrageous greediness of Papa John's owner and CEO. He refuses to raise the price of his pizza 11 to 14 cents in order to help cover his worker's health insurance. In fact, he is slashing all of their hours so there's no way they could qualify as full-time employees entitled to some important benefits in a civilized society that actually begins to care about its workers. This callous creature has been gaining more and more profits each year, lives in a 40,000 square foot mansion and has something like a 20+ car garage. These people are a menace to our country.

OK, glad to have gotten that off my chest. But here's a link to the petition directed at this asshole.

Glad I have begun to write more. It's a good feeling to create, and exercise my mind. Hope many of you find sometime soon to utilize your creativity and tap into your talents. Big smile as Bruno rests his head on my left foot, as if encouraging me to do what I enjoy.
