Angry Conversations with God

Posted by Jack

As some of you may know, from time to time I write alongside an eclectic little group of writers known as Burnside Writers Collective.

Through my interactions with this motley crew, I met a talented friend named Susan Isaacs. Susan is a writer and performer with credits in TV, film, stage, and radio. She is also a noted comedian.

Kids say the darndest things

Posted by Jack

Three stories from the past 2 weeks.

The police officer was visiting our classroom full of young children as a part of their "Safety Week" activities. She had brought along her canine partner in order to demonstrate how they search for drugs and illicit materials. As she passed out some coloring books to the children, she began to ask them questions about their experiences with the police.

"What is a police officer's job?" she asked.

A young boy in the back raised his hand.

"Police officers take daddies to jail."
