Medical Malpractice Limits (Article) - 6/15/2006 11:24:50 AM
The single biggest obstacle to reducing medical malpractice is that physicians practice outside their specialty. A dermatologist couldnt do breast reduction in a hospital but in his office anything goes. In Sarasota an oral surgeon tried his hand at breast surgery and the patient died. If you get a chance please review my article "The High Price of Ignorance" also on this site.

Wolves, One Manís Opinion (Article) - 11/8/2005 8:07:08 AM
Yes.... a very good comparison. I liked it all... Thanks for sharing.

Wolves, One Manís Opinion (Article) - 6/10/2005 3:17:34 PM
Wolves (Canis Lupus) are beautiful animals, they obviously live by instincts and do what is expected of them. They have their place within the animal society with which they live, its normal for them to behave in such a manner...not so with man (Homo Canis Misogynist) some men of course, their behavior is not the norm, some go to the very limits and some because invariably they can and do get away with it. It is not an acceptable way to behave, we know that, and the cunningness is unacceptable for most of us 'humans', but they still manage to get away with it. Dont they?

Wolves, One Manís Opinion (Article) - 2/20/2005 11:57:52 AM
This is great! I love the comparison and your ending is stunning! Thanks for writing. Monette

Wolves, One Manís Opinion (Article) - 1/17/2005 9:36:01 PM
I read this last week, but could not comment until I registered as a reader. Couldn't do that until I validated my registration and my computer or this site wouldn't let me. Finally did that tonight - 17-Jan-2005. Your comparison of the attributes of the wolf animal and the wolf human animal is interesting and clarifying.

The Penduleum is Swinging (Article) - 12/31/2004 1:08:20 PM
This article shocks me. I almost stopped at the first sentence because it made no sense. Indoctrinate means to teach, to instruct in fundamentals. That's what inststutions of any learning level do. But when you pointed to Joe Mccathy, refering to him as anything but an over zealous bigot, I believe the chair I sat in began an exorcising spin. Renewed in spirit and cleansed of all evil thought I then heard the words "Marxist inspired liberals of the world". It is never wise or fruitful to label any group as Marxist. History is full of great liberals. I felt a lot of unnecessary hate in this article which throughly destroyed any message intended. There are ways to get your point across without attacking people.

The Penduleum is Swinging (Article) - 12/30/2004 10:01:52 AM
Well there are a lot of questions that need to be answered about the bible. The disciples wrote gospels mainly about Jesus because they were men and he was a superstar not intending harm. But they left out a lot about his earthly parents. I agree with the basics of your article.

Wolves, One Manís Opinion (Article) - 12/26/2004 6:10:11 PM
Man, have I been misinformed, thanks for clarifying all this. Debbie

Wolves, One Manís Opinion (Article) - 12/24/2004 1:17:50 PM

Freedom's Fireworks (Poetry) - 7/6/2014 1:45:55 PM
Your insight must be painful. I can assure you this reader has never watched fireworks without tears. I have not had to face those horrors. I can't really imagine. Those that have, I express my sincere gratitude. Beautifully written.

Freedom's Fireworks (Poetry) - 7/5/2014 3:34:26 PM
...time to reflect...proud of poets pride for own Country...while celebrating and enjoying the freedom...Poets verse worth being molded into the Liberty Bell... Happy 4th July!

Freedom's Fireworks (Poetry) - 7/5/2014 11:57:04 AM
Very insightful piece into the meaning of celebrating our freedom and what it means to keep it in the face of tyranny. Ron

Mother Earth Is Angry (Poetry) - 7/9/2012 7:55:45 PM
We love this poetry Because we are volunteer Environmental Ambassador. I post "Mother Earth is Angry" to our group E-mail that just short time someone and myself already translate to Chinese poetry. And also we want to share with more people to rise awareness for environmental Issues. When we request Steven's permission that he sent back to me immediately. Thank you very much Steven.

Growing Up (Poetry) - 6/2/2010 4:44:22 AM
I often see children waiting for the school bus in the morning...this puts my overwhelming and often tear provoking feelings in to words. I never knew exactly how to articulate my feelings. You have done it.

The Lady and the Dragon (Poetry) - 6/2/2010 4:27:00 AM
I love this!

Aftermath (Poetry) - 6/2/2010 4:22:28 AM
This poem...all of your writing that I have read makes me think. It takes me away from myself to a distant place in thought. To me, this poem speaks of the atrocity, deceit and ambiguity of war...the "virgin" motivation quickly turned to ashes. For those left breathing...the soul crushed.

Mother Earth Is Angry (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 3:37:55 AM

Ok, that does it. Oklahoma is too hot and muggy this time of year. If y'all are looking for me, I'll be in Estes Park, enjoying those views, vistas and verdant valleys. :-) Seriously, I spent a lot of time in Colorado as a kid, and Steve, you've captured the ambiance perfectly...reading this has been wonderfully nostalgic.

A Little Angel (Poetry) - 10/26/2006 1:12:12 PM
This is such a beautiful and loving tribute to her, Steven. Five is so young. Her family is in my thoughts and prayers. Maybe you could give this poem to her parents from me. My warmest regards, CJ Letter From Heaven Mommy, Daddy, how I miss you and I know you're missing me. There are windows here in heaven and every day I look and see my toys all in the toybox and my dolls up on the shelf but I can't pull them in my wagon now nor hold them to myself. My little rocker's empty and your arms feel empty too. I can see the sadness in your face. Mommy, Daddy, I love you. My music box is quiet but I don't need to hear it play. Mommy, Daddy, it's not needed now - angels here sing every day. Please don't worry that I'm lonely, there are children everywhere. We are all His little angels and there's so much love up here. Mommy, Daddy, please don't cry for me, heaven's such a lovely place. God says you did your very best and your love shows in my face. Mommy, Daddy, when you need me just look up and say a prayer. I will see you through the windows and I'll hear your voice up here. C.J. Heck

hmmm it seems that I wrote a kind of flip-side to this poem several years ago titled Prisoner of Love. Mine was not written from my own life, simply one of those that came to me one day. I will post it on your board so I don't leave my work here upon your site. I can taste the bittersweetness of this, Steven...and feel the heartache that comes with the understanding that it was doomed from the first and never meant to be. Take care, Sherry

Freedom (Poetry) - 5/30/2006 7:58:04 PM
The Soldier gives unselfishly for the greater good of humanity, certainly a soldier who believes in freedom. There is a human side to war (odd as that may sound) and a political side. The soldier follows the orders of the political side because he/she believes in the human side. Freedom should be the birthright of all mankind, sadly that is not the case. You are right, "Freedom is never free" and the price paid for it is greater than anything else we have ever known. The red stripes in our flag symbolize the rivers of blood that have been shed by those who so believed in freedom that they gave their all in defense of it. Thank you for this poem, Steven, I somehow feel that Erin may have misunderstood the direction you were taking with this, or perhaps I am the one who did not understand your intentions. I agree that too many want the benefits that only a few are willing to stand up for. Take care, Sherry

The Oregon Trail (Poetry) - 5/30/2006 7:42:53 PM
The strength of the human spirit is a marvel and those who traveled the Oregon Trail were a strong and different breed of pioneer. I haven't thought about any of that for years, since it was taught to me in school. Strong, vivid images make this poem come to life and step off of the page. Take care, Sherry

Freedom (Poetry) - 5/17/2006 8:43:28 PM
Dear Steven; Though Erin is my friend, I disagree with her comments on "too few were willing". It is WILL which makes the real difference betwen freedom and slavery. This piece might could use a bit of grammatical "polish", but rings very true for such as me and those I knew... Doc

To think it all happened in a short summer. You either got there or died trying. Or, you holed up for the winter and your team didn't make it. Ron

Freedom (Poetry) - 3/22/2006 11:37:15 PM
To me, R. Steven, you started out strong, then became peavish, as in 'too few were willing', maybe, 'too few were able' would sound more reality-given, since faith, compromised by the indivdual thoughts of six billion people, is, and especially was, perspectively driven. You don't want to ram religion down anyone's throat, it is conscriptive to freedom... I enjoyed viewing your bio picture, I had wondered of the 'who' behind the mind. I feel there are depths to be gathered, considered and assimilated and written of, from your life, because, I felt comfort from your image, Steven... Erin Elizabeth Kelly-Moen

Freedom (Poetry) - 3/18/2006 1:18:47 AM
So very true.....freedom does not come for free..too much greed and self indulgence!! Blood I wil give to any person if I could but am not allowed to..because I am suffering that "low blood pressure" thingy!! Love Tinka Love Tinka

Canoe Trip (Notes) (Poetry) - 9/12/2005 10:45:08 AM
This one I like better, but I like simplicity and clarity. The other one is good, too, because it is a bit deeper in an obvious way, and I think there are many people who like it to be spelled out for them- I don't know, tough call! But I love this one, I must admit.
