A Fall Snobs Tale of Baseball

A Fall Snobs Tale of Baseball

Autumn is my favorite time of year.
 

Big deal, it's a lot of people's favorite season.

I live in California, in the Sacramento area, where fall is suffocation. The month of September, a month all about apples and pencils, was around 90 degrees all month. Do the leaves change? No. No they don't. What about all the Trader Joe's Pumpkin food? Is that there???

Of course, it's Trader Joe's.

Calling for a Resignation

Calling for a Resignation

J. Sam Williams

I label the driver who drove into a crowd of counter protesters a terrorist. This is because his actions mirror that of terrorists globaly. It is evident he was not a lone wolf. He was a part of the protest, among fellow protesters. He used a vehicle to kill those who oppose him, and this incites fear. To me, that is the definition of a terrorist. A person who uses a means of destruction that results in the quelling of opposing voices and inciting fear. Whether this murderer meant to incite fear is immaterial. That is what he did in a violent manner. Thus, he is a terrorist. The action was an action of terrorism.

Back in January, my wife, I, and two friends—husband and wife—took a trip to Spain. The trip had been a long time coming.

Getting away from the United States, getting a perspective as to how others live, the mental vibe of cities, and towns—it’s something that we’ve found to be important.

I'm Confused

I'm Confused

J. Sam Williams

 

I’m confused as to what it means to be American anymore. I was happy to support Obama and most of his policies, and I was happy to support the person George W. Bush, though not his policies. I can neither support the man Donald Trump, or his policies. Yet, supporting the executive office—or any government branch—is necessary step for all Americans. If we do not support our government our government will fail us.

The Current Journey of a Millennial Wanna-Be Writer

The Current Journey of a Millennial Wanna-Be Writer

J. Sam Williams

My current struggles with being a writer, and the trajectory of my career.

"Looking back five years now I feel as though I was pushed too soon—for me that is—to make a decision on what I wanted to be. College provided all these open opportunities and I went headfirst into what made me passionate. And once I realized what I really wanted I was already too far along to back out."
