Welcome to CancerLand
(previously released as: F*ck You Cancer ... and the cell you rode in on)
I had never given much thought to the nature of my demise, should that ever occur. However, if I had conjured up a list of potential causes, cancer would not have even been considered for consideration.
However, if it had appeared on my list as one of my potential executioners d’ jour, it would have been in the quest of completeness, not because I considered it within the realm of possibility. And, certainly it would have fallen to the very bottom, right after being eaten by sharks in my basement.
To be clear, I have never had sharks or any other predatory fish in my basement, except for Attila, my kosher goldfish. Moreover, I live over forty miles from the ocean and there is no way that a shark could get to my house — and if it did, it is unlikely that it could open the basement door. The prevailing logic notwithstanding, I opted for shark-proofing my house as part of the termite guarantee.
To wit, I had a slightly greater chance of being attacked by sharks in my basement than getting cancer.
I was wrong.

An American classic of four lifelong friends, treachery, gambling, romance and a NYC fireman's quest to become the best horseplayer ever to play the game. Dutching the Book is about the depth of friendship that only comes with lifelong friends—each a unique and fascinating character—threaded together by an adventure that is based more on reality than fiction.
Late 1930’s Brooklyn, the Great Depression had almost gone. Ben Collesano had a can’t-lose scheme and he didn't—until the racetrack shut him down. Now, over twenty years later, a fireman, he would be tested against the best. But this time he could lose everything as he takes on bookies to save his family and, on the journey, finds himself.
The epic, which was based on real people and actual events over several decades, redefined horse racing and is a tribute to the people who really lived it.
One guy can't change the world-- good thing that Glebe didn't know that
Did you ever feel like you didn't count with big business or the government? Glebe did; an unlikely hero, he takes on everything that irks that average guy as he tweets his way to the first worldwide revolution. Big business and the government have met their match, as Glebe gives power to the people in a witty tale so unlikely, that it is totally plausible, definitely relevant, and very funny.
Tweet is a funny romp through the world we live in: the powerless consumer, over-saturated advertising, incessant marketing and big business that has suddenly become hard of hearing even though your call is very important to them.
Glebe just wanted to make a difference and he did what you would have done if you had thought of it and were very passionate and very quirky.
One guy can't change the
