The pdf is no longer available for download or view… what a pain!
You think you can upload it again or please send it to my email address? Would really appreciate so.
Thank you and Warm Regards,

Why would any one insinuate he was turned on by killing?
In fact he /was/ a “good man” – saved the 16 yr old whose father didn’t have time for her (but she killed herself anyway), taught himself tree surgery when he was sent to prison for vagrancy..

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 15:17:04 +0000http://violentworldofparker.com/?p=6878#comment-254742I was mulling over this issue, and coedlucnd:1) Some modern cars have MOST functions controlled by computer – brakes, cruise, throttle, gear selection, starter, ignition, injection.2) If all these functions were run by a single computer, then in the event of an ECU brain-fart, it would be possible that the system IGNORED all inputs (or more precisely, never got around to responding because the control program was in a tight loop trying to get the cruise-maintained speed to Vmax.)Conclusion? It is POSSIBLE that the anecdotes are true- at least for very new cars – but I want more information before I believe it.

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 15:08:54 +0000http://violentworldofparker.com/?p=3017#comment-254739I too am surprised about Off the Map. I’ve been waihctng it, and I really like it. Yeah, it’s a medical drama but imagine it with no real technology. Hell, one episode had the docs buying heroin because all of their drugs were stolen. They’re in the middle of no civilization, so Body of Proof is still on my watch list. I like Dana Delany, and she’s got a pretty decent way at humor and drama. Reminds me of her China Beach days. I miss China Beach I cannot get into Vampire Diaries on The CW. I tried, but nope. I still love Supernatural. Waiting on the writers to decide if there will be a 7th season. Season 6 has been pretty lackluster for me, though I still like it.I’m waiting on The Walking Dead to come back, and just started waihctng The Killing on AMC. I like that AMC is getting more into the critical dramas. I need to get Mad Men to the top of my Netflix queue.The cats are waiting for the season premiere of Deadliest Catch. It’s King Crab season after all.

Sat, 05 Dec 2015 07:25:22 +0000http://violentworldofparker.com/?p=2688#comment-254580Harlan Ellison included the story in one of his anthologies. Mr. Westlake, & I presume, Harlan Ellison tried to shop it to the 80’s reboot of the Twilight Zone, but CBS thought it ” Too controversial ” & counter to the messages of peace & goodwill. Instead they did a new version of ” Night of the Meek “, which was very good, but I must confess to a curiosity about how Nackles would’ve been on the small screen.

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 22:19:54 +0000http://violentworldofparker.com/?p=3092#comment-254303“Now Obama and the Democrats OWN it.”This is true. Blame Bush will work for about six months to polbsisy a year. After that this debacle will belong to Obama and the Democrats. For the sake of the country I hope and pray the economy improves. Unfortunately there is absolutely way this so called stimulus plan can polbsisy work. In fact, it is absolutely guaranteed to make things worse. Only an evil person or a complete idiot would come up with such a plan. Given that the so called stimulus plan is guarnateed to fail and the Democrats own it, in a reasonalby fair election the Democrats would be handing control of the House and Senate to the Republicans. It makes me wonder just what are they thinking. Normally I’m not given to conspiracy theories. First of all I do not think the Democrats are idiots. This means they may not plan to hold elections in 2010. They may be planning to use some “crisis” to cancel them. Finally, if the economy does improve, it will not be because of the so called stimulus plan. It will be in spite of the stimulus plan. This so called stimulus plan is the exact opposite of a stimulus plan.
