Gene & June, I have only read some small sections of ur works but I believe I have found a new author to read & follow. The Cricketary sounds priceless. I WILL be buying the book when I get paid and I AM a new fan...bring us more! My works are by no means in your league, but feel free to peruse through it anyway, who knows, maybe a laugh or two might ensue, :) ED
Shakespeare Moves to Rossmoor (Article) - 12/7/2013 11:18:11 AM
So that's where you been so long? I have found iMovie to be a bit tricky to work with as well. I can't believe there are so many images of Shakespeare. I believe you included them all, plus a few of you and your Shakespeare club. Unfortunately, I found the video a bit rushed… perhaps to keep up with the music? As well as a bit too redundant for me. A bit of editing could remove a lot of the redundancy and perhaps shorten it to five minutes or less.
I have not added music to my videos and have only recently discovered voiceover. Unfortunately, my $49 microphone is too good and my voice booms in its obviously strained mode. It is nice that you can do multiple undos to erase the mistakes you make while working on a movie.
Paul Robeson at Camp (Article) - 11/4/2013 8:01:47 AM
I often don't click on these articles because they are blatant advertisements for authors' books.
However, I'm so glad I clicked on this one. While I've always admired Paul Robeson, I never knew about his involvement in this camp. I'm so glad you brought it to my attention. I am going to share it with all my friends who seem to have a different vision of those years, many of whom spent their entire lives growing up thinking of black people as something other than humans and the camps were full of jokes about black people' so-called behavior. I never believed any of it and glad that I had a part in civil rights and working for predominantly black institutions.
Watching your brief film brought tears.
Was Shakespeare an Atheist? (Article) - 8/7/2012 1:09:37 PM
I'm glad I took the time to read your article. I stumbled upon it because I have recently written a similar article That deals with Humanistic and Ahteisic elements in the play King Lear. I come to the same conclusion. Please check it out and tell me what you think. Thank you.

Simply put: you don't know what you are talking about.
Big Bang or Big Farce? (Article) - 6/20/2007 5:40:08 PM
A wonderful essay on the idiotic Big Bang Theory of the "origin" of the universe! My sentiments exactly. For the details on how we got into this mess and how we will get out of it, see my new book "The Scientific Worldview: (www.thescientificworldview).
The Sonnets: All or Nothing at All? (Article) - 2/8/2007 10:07:27 AM
Very interesting analysis, Gordon. Excellent work. Comment from a non-scholar: It occurs to me that Shakespeare's mood may change from sonnet to sonnet with the distance (in time) from his last sexual encounter, (physically or mentally) i.e., horny vs. not so horny. Satisfactual proximity has been known to plant or remove a smile. Might it not also affect the writing of love poems?

Was Shakespeare a Kabbalist? (Article) - 11/29/2004 4:20:10 PM
Very insightful and interesting read. I rather agree that Shakespeare was an intelligent word artist on his own merit.

First, hello to a Bay Area neighbor. Second, very impressive article. You make a convincing argument. Great article.
Mormons 'n Me (Article) - 3/24/2003 1:01:44 PM
I really liked your article about the Mormons. I grew up a staunch Catholic in Ohio, complete with Catholic schools, and the whole bit. By the age of 24 I was Mormon. I have been in and out of the church several times, currently out, and like you, I struggle with so many of the issues that you cite in your article. It made me think, and for that, I thank you.
