And you still can hear me singin' to the people who don't listen

To the things that I am sayin', prayin' someone's gonna hear.

- Kris Kristofferson Blah blah blog. Does anybody read these things?
Conventional wisdom says I should have a blog, but that doesn’t mean I have to be conventional. Technically, this isn’t a blog. It’s a eclectic collection of opinion pieces I’ve written for The Union newspaper in Grass Valley, California, U.S.; InvisiblePeople.tv an international website supporting homeless people; and other publications. These are not necessarily in chronological order. Mortal Coil Shuffle - how we die Why I hate ‘the homeless’ - it’s not what you think Choose your groove - a commencement curse Give us shelter - the myth of affordable housing We Need ADUs Not Excuses - government inaction The Myth of the Accidental Overdose - the real victims of the opioid crisis Lived Experience - Invisible People: Autobiographical stories about being homeless published by InvisiblePeople.tv, a national, homeless advocacy website. We are changing the face of homelessness. Close encounter with a porcupine - or how to write on deadline Write to Be Read - look easy to read, be easy to read Forgive Me Not - some things are unforgivable Stop the steal of our flag - wrapping yourself in the American flag does not make you a patriot Jan. 6, a day of infamy - Pearl Harbor, 9/11, Jan. 6 Code Compliance cop-out - an investigative, advocative series exploring how Nevada County Code Compliance contributes to homelessness when county policy is to prevent homelessness; everybody has a right to seek shelter and everybody has a right to offer it: housing for the people by the people

Conventional wisdom says I should have a blog, but that doesn’t mean I have to be conventional. When I have something to say, I’ll say it. I promise to keep these entries short and to a really sharp point. I won’t waste your time.
