We’re all going to miss The Deputy
Petraeus’ breach of security deserves harsher punishment
I wouldn’t mind having my own drone. It would have to have some sort of claw-grabber device, preferably one capable of toting an icy-cold beer bottle or remote control that was left on the other side of the room. It could take the place of the trained monkey I once pondered buying.

Let’s face it: There are a lot of things out there in this scary world that can do you in. Terrorism, disease, grizzly bears, volcanos, certain football players — risks are everywhere, and you have to take steps to protect yourself. Luckily, the Internet is here to help.
I am not worried about getting Ebola — yet. Despite what the shameless ratings grabbers are hinting at — that we’re basically a step away from the apocalpyse — we’ve got a ways to go before we get to Black Death or Spanish Flu territory.

I don’t have a brain tumor anymore. I don’t mind admitting I cried when my family told me that the evening of May 7 when I was coherent enough to understand English again. I don’t have enough time or space to recount all I’ve been through since then, but I’ll try to hit a few of the highlights. And lowlights.
