This need of attention has caused a whole new problem with terrorism. Instead of wanting to get a lot of people to watch, there are those who now want a lot of people dead. This is frightening considering that the younger generations have been softened to murder and purposeful destruction, which means that the less they think it's wrong, the more they'll start doing it. The terrorists today most likely grew up with the idea that death was bad an ...

Why I'm calling, though, is to inquire about the number of outboard motors that have gone missing since last week." "Pardon me?" The tone of his voice took a sudden sinister turn that sent a twinge through my bladder. Like the rookie I was, I had made some as yet unrecognized blunder. I felt the strong urge to conclude the interview immediately, but it was too late. He knew my name. He knew my brother's name. He knew why I'd called. He knew everything. I'd have to bluff past my own ignorance. "Well, I was wondering if the police suspected some kind of theft ring being i ...
