    My sister came down to Rio in 1974 and I took her to Buenos Aires. I don't think the city was quite ready for her. From the moment we hit downtown she was in shopper's orbit. We scoured that mall from beginning to end, and back. While I didn't buy an... more

    It is a short flight to Argentina from Rio de Janeiro, and we always went with high hearts for a different scene. Our other reasons weren't very nice, for in 1972 the dollar was strong and the Argentine peso weak. You might imagine how much a buck co... more

    The desire to control and dominate is near universal. Its comic and tragic consequences are also near universal. Literature often captures this very human tendency: the desire to control and dominate. This desire is what the entire animal ki... more

  • Our burglar by Lucille lucil95783@aol.com 8/9/2012 7:49:13 AM
    The nights were so hot, not to speak of the days, in Rio de Janeiro's summers. January was the worst month. The air conditioner had broken down and we slept with the balcony doors open. At about 2 a.m. I had to go downstairs to make myself an a... more

  • A Pile of Rocks by Dorien Grey 8/6/2012 5:17:08 AM
    Well, what do you know? Here I am heading off on another rant-and-rave on one of my favorite topics: email spam. I’d really like to know how this spam thing works. Obviously it is something of a franchise program, for if you’ll note, you’ll get five... more
