Posted by:

To have any street cred about prostitution, I have to have had some personal experiences with those long-legged females up ahead.

I had that chance, as an unmarried man, during my college days. So, I’m not telling anything out of school here.

In the mid-60s I formed a romance with those beautiful black-eyed Mexican women embedded by Hollywood in so many Western films, and one in particular, the beautiful, busty Lieutenant Chiquita, Mexican Juarista extraordinaire. Continue Reading →

Stolen Valor, 1972 edition

Posted by:

I arrived at my new duty assignment in Japan in February, 1972. They had just concluded a rare general court martial for that command, Attempted Murder. It had ended with an acquittal and the entire JAG staff was outraged.

The fellow who beat this rap was a decorated Sergeant E-5 who, after his tour in Vietnam had been re-assigned to a cush job at the nearby Army Hospital Command.

I won’t mention his name as he later became my client, and may still be alive.  I’ll just ...

Posted by:

In Richmond, the old capital of the Confederacy, there’s a famous street called Monument Avenue, where stands Virginia’s great generals from that war. They’ve been much in the news the past several months for many people would like to see them removed.

But among those statues is one dedicated to Arthur Ashe, a Richmond native, who was the son of the resident handyman of a segregated park for black children, which contained, among other things, four tennis courts. Showing aptitude for a ...

My 60-Year Affair With The World’s Oldest Profession; Betty, Part I

Posted by:

Allen’s Airborne enlistment poster (Skit Nite) is an art form I never get tired of admiring, especially leggy women. It also put me in mind of a story that’s been dancing around in my head for a long time. It actually started on a military note, World War II, well sort of, then swerved way back to Mexico, then back to the Army and Korea, then ending up in Russia and the Balkans, with short stops in a host of other countries.

A Story about Meeting the Commander of PT-109, as told to me
