About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

The Sheikh Wore Black
Thursday, March 15, 2007

You probably recognize Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who confessed yesterday that he was the mastermind behind 9/11 ("from A to Z"), the guy who beheadded Daniel Pearl, and the mover behind dozens of other plots, some successful, some foiled (the shoe bomber), some un-hatched. He even claimed involvement in the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, and claims to have helped finance Ishtar.

(I know he's a bad guy, but if you ask me, I think he's resume-padding a little.)

It wasn't a surprise that he was the man behind 9/11. It wasn't a surprise that he beheaded Pearl-- as he boasted, "there's video of me on the Internet!" I saw it on his MySpace page.

But the untold story here is the way the US tortured Muhammad in order to get that confession. I am informed by reliable sources that during his stay at Gitmo, he was routinely given an upper body wax, deloused, tossed in the shower, made to shampoo (including lathering, rinsing, AND repeating). He was forced to shave. He was made to use fancy soaps on all parts of his body, including soaps that left him with a faint scent of lavendar. He was forcibly manicured. Then he was made to dress in form-fitting western clothes, and he was paraded in front of the other prisoners, to his shame.

After months of this treatment, it isn't hard to see why he confessed to every act of terrorism ever committed.

It looks like they took him to the Men's Wearhouse as well. Bastards!
