    "If I had a gun and he stood beside me in the woods as I shot at birds, then he would have some respect for me."

    Kudos on that classic line and your PANK story.

    Way to go regarding Annalemma. VERY impressive.

    David Erlewine – Mar 23, 2009

    Thanks so much for checking out my story in Black Heart. That's, ah, a bit of a departure for me but I enjoyed writing it on the train, though I was sure the guy next to me was reading my scribbles and calling the cops.

    David Erlewine – Mar 22, 2009

    Hey there, thanks so much for checking out "Always with Us" and adding me as a contact. Take care, David
