If you tried to leave Cape Cod yesterday, you know what I'm talking about.
There was a time when, after an arrest and the confiscation of product, a lab analysis report establishing the nature of the drugs found was sufficient evidence against an alleged dealer.
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
Tempest-tossed to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
Except the unaccompanied children.
I'll just send them back
even if I don't know
where back is.
Today, I want to take an excerpt from my book Please, God, Not Two: This Killer Called Alcoholism, which is a sequel from Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round: An Alcoholic Family in Crisis. These are my words to describe my pain watching my daughter being taken off life support.

Hurricane Arthur grazed Cape Cod yesterday, bringing high winds, power outages, and soaking rains to the holiday cookout. His closest approach was about 50-75 miles from Chatham and Nantucket.
Okay, it has finally been articulated that all the drug cartel murders that are motivating parents in Central America to send their kids to the United States based on the sales pitch of those who charge them to supposedly escort the kids north that claim conditions are welcoming here and that the kids will be welcome with open arms, are Obama’s fault.
Quick Warning For Off Cape....
A trip home from TF Green Airport got ugly fast as terrible flooding is presently going down, and Hurricane Athur isn't even here yet.

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Paris with my wife. We indulged in the beauty and delights of the city by walking and tasting, drinking and eating as much as was humanly possible. For instance the museums, parks, Roman Cisterns, and food shops as well, helped evoke the history and elegance and aroma of that which is uniquely Parisian. We discovered and sampled the creameries ( cheese shops), and sweet shops (pasteleries), charcutares ( pork shops ). and boulangeries (bakeries). These all became destinations for us on a routine basis.
