An Adult Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, my boss (leader, commander, top dog … whatever) told me he loved confrontations. He thrived on challenging, then besting opponents. The context of his remarks didn’t exactly make me comfortable, but I understood the culture of Alphas. I lived them, and in many ways, I may have even been one of them. At the time, I was relatively new to the unit and had been recently promoted to become one of my boss’ several supervisors. I came to him with an evaluation of my little unit’s readiness to perform a task the training officer had placed on the schedule. The unpleasant reality that we were not current, and therefore unqualified, sounded like an insinuation of the person whose place I’d taken. Like someone once said, I… Read more >

Can Police or Any Other Agency Track You Through Your Cell Phone Without a Warrant?

Johns Smith cover

Once again we have the Supreme Court making a decision how much of our privacy can and should be invaded by law enforcement or, in reality, any government agency. It’s too bad they don’t also weigh in on just how much corporations should be allowed to gather and utilize our information. If cell phone companies were not allowed to store our GPS histories, this case wouldn’t happen. If Facebook wasn’t allowed to track and store information about its users many other invasions of privacy wouldn’t happen as a result, like all of those “targeted ads” and “targeted news.” How about that fake news which was targeted using this same information? Was that an invasion of privacy. Google, well, they are the for-profit arm of the NSA, gathering everything about every… Read more >

Twenty of Two – The Infamous They – Pt. 23

“Don’t ask. I will not try to explain it nor will I go into deeper detail of our operations. I will, however, tell you a bit about my first assignment. That is all you get.” The last statement was said looking her directly in the eye. This conversation was over and I was leaving. Somehow she managed to figure it out from that look and nodded. “I was about your age when they approached me. By that time I ticked all the right boxes. I didn’t know it then, but I wasn’t brought in via the normal route of grooming through college then sent for training. Instead, I was sent out on my own with a sack of cash and a dossier. The target was going to be in the… Read more >

Twenty of Two – The Infamous They – Pt. 22

Scope of SKREP There is a rather large group of the human population which has this fetish of being woken up via someone making out with and then making love to them. It is roughly the same group of people who think stories and movies set in an era before we had daily hot showers, toothpaste, toothbrushes, good soap and deodorants featuring mad passionate kissing are “so romantic.” They also tend to overlook the reality most people need to go to the bathroom when they first wake up. Reality has a tendency to destroy fantasy. Thankfully, Melony isn’t one of those people. Paying my rent was just as exhausting and pleasurable as it had been the night before, after life’s necessities were taken care of. Lying there waiting for our… Read more >

The Last Rounds

Last Rounds 1 image

Most of you reading this probably read the title and immediately thought about golf or some other sport. Like most first impressions, nothing could be further from the truth. A “round” in farming terms is a complete back and forth round trip across a field with some kind of implement or machinery. This missive is about the annual event, those final few rounds of the final field. There comes a time with every harvest when you see a sight much like the featured image of this post. Those final few rounds of that final field. Oh, true. You see those final few rounds in every field, but they are not the same final few rounds. Most years, when you harvest the final tank of soybeans, the relief you feel is… Read more >
