Why I Am Madly In Love With France Gall

There is one area of pop music where the French have been successful, despite the "I need the Heimlich maneuver" vocal strangling of the lingua franca. This is in the area of the chanteuse, the nymphet vocalist, all wide-eyed innocence and allure.  Among that group of teen queens, one reigns supreme.  Her dominance of the girly, bubble-gummy French pop music genre of the early to mid 1960s is why I am madly in love with France Gall.

There was only one issue at work, and that was the issue of slavery.

Home Life: Making it sweet and secure again

This article attempts to confront one of today's most challenging questions--what has happened to home life? You may be shocked to learn how price manipulation plays a strong role in the deconstruction of family living. I think that anyone who is raising a family today (or desires to) will find this narrative important and interesting to their tomorrows to come.

Dishonorable Dead of Plot "E"

Plot "E": it is one of the world's loneliest places, and perhaps the least celebrated.  Buried in it are some of the World War II dead.  But it is not that war's heroes interred there.  Instead, the shunned Plot "E" contains the bodies of military criminals.

Black Hole of Calcutta

In the case of a particularly heinous 18th Century abuse of human rights, the imprisonment of over 140 British citizens in what has infamously become known as "The Black Hole of Calcutta" strengthened Britain's resolve to conquer India. The "Black Hole" incident, however, perhaps never happened, at least not to the extremes reported by one of its survivors, John Holwell.

Aileen Wuornos: Damaged and Deadly

With only the most gut-wrenching soul-searching could anyone ever feel any modicum of sympathy for a serial killer. Their acts appall; their anarchy frightens civilized society.  Aileen Wuornos, the homeless Florida prostitute and murderer of seven men, may perhaps be the only serial killer who might, however, merit a degree of compassion.  The “Melbourne Hitchhiker”, as she was dubbed by the press before her discovery, may not have been a monster so much as she was a broken human being.

True Story of America's First Famous Exorcism

Emma Schmidt (pseudonym: Anna Ecklund) was a Midwestern American woman subjected to one of the last Catholic Church-sanctioned exorcisms in the US. She was exorcised in 1928; her case was written up and approved for publication by the Church in 1935. Elements of Emma's demonic possession case would later feature heavily in both the novel and the 1973 movie, "The Exorcist".
