Book Review: “Ring Around The Rosy” By Jackie Fullerton

282 pages
Thomas House Publishing (2012)

You remember Topper, an American fantasy sitcom on CBS in the mid-fifties?

“Sophisticated but stuffy Cosmo Topper (Carroll), the vice president of a Los Angeles bank, married to sweet (but rather clueless) Henrietta (Lee Patrick) buys a house from the estate of a young couple, George and Marion Kerby (real life husband and wife Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffreys). The Kerbys died after being swept away by an avalanche along with their St. Bernard, Neil, who attempted to rescue them. Topper discovers his new home is haunted by the former occupants as well as Neil. Strangely, he is the only one able to see or hear them. Neil, the St. Bernard, loves martinis and a running gag is the invisible dog lapping up the drink.”

Pick up “Ring Around The Rosy” and get acquainted with Anne Marshall who has a knack for getting involved with murderers. She is helped by her deceased father, James, who announces his presence to his daughter with the smell of pipe smoke. She is the only one who can see her father. Together, they make a great crime fighting team. The two are aided by her friend and Detective Maria, and computer expert John.

Someone is killing what appears to be a whole line of descendents and manages to stay one step ahead of the law. Never fear Anne is always around the action, no matter how much her fiancé, Jason Perry, worries about her safety.

Build The Keystone Pipeline!

President Obama Has Set In Motion Forces That He Can’t Handle.

“…a perfect storm is brewing. I think we’re heading for a chaotic and violent period in this country the likes of which no one alive today has ever witnessed.  If I’m right, conditions will be ideal for criminals to ply their craft, and President Obama is pushing for gun control at precisely the wrong moment.”

Dangerous Times: Islamic Fascism Exploits Euro Crisis

For sixty years the US has defended Europe from its biggest enemies, Hitler and Stalin. Today we are not even allowed to mention Islamist totalitarianism, which threatens the West just as it has since the early Middle Ages.”

The authors say three things must be done:

  1. The first need is to speak the truth. The real “Islamophobia” is the fear of telling the truth about Islam. Without the truth, the West is helpless. That starts with telling the truth about the terrorist act of Nidal Malik Hasan, the United States Army officer and sole accused in the November 5, 2009, Fort Hood shooting, which occurred less than a month before he was due to deploy to Afghanistan, an act which is now labeled workplace violence.
  2. The second need is to break the OPEC monopoly
  3. A third crucial need is to finally reject socialist ideology that controls the Western media and education, and therefore our voters and politics.

Civilized peoples need to recapture the initiative. Socialism, fascism, Islamism –  all are failed ideologies. They bring disaster in their wake.

Gold In Backwardation!

“The market is offering a free profit to anyone who will sell a gold bar and buy an April contract.”

That’s the problem. If you sell your Gold today, and buy an April contract at a lower price, the risk is that there is no Gold to deliver to you when the April contract comes due. Backwardation means that supply is constrained! If supply is constrained then prices should go up to bring out more supply.

Book Review: The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club By Duncan Whitehead

199 pages
Dog Ear Publishing, LLC (December 2, 2012)

February 22 is National Dog Walking Day and if you like dogs or walking a dog, then step up and read this book. It captures your interest in the opening with a professional hit man digging a grave in Savannah’s Juliette Low Park just before sunrise then waiting for the victim. It was a beautiful day, “…but for one individual that day would not last long.”

That first chapter was a highlight along with Elliot’s time spent in Argentina and his long conversations with the elderly Senor Kurtz, a revered story-teller at La Casa Verde, the restaurant run by Senor Cardasso.

Unfortunately, those are the few highlights in Mr. Whitehead’s novel. It seems that the author came up with an idea, then, used tortured coincidences to advance the story. The characters, while real, were unusually short tempered to the point of resorting to hit men.

The author must feel the reader is stupid, too. He repeats the whole first chapter, word for word in the last few pages and manages to leave out the sacks of lime salts to be used in the burial.

Kelly goes to Paris and calls home to her husband Tom. In the first call she reaches him at 11:00 pm her time and is told by Tom that it was 5:00 am in Savannah. The next time she calls him it’s 8:00 am her time and guesses it was 2:00 pm in Savannah. Tom tells her it is 3:00 am. Actually Paris is six hours ahead of EDT. Either Kelly is a dim bulb, Tom is lying about the time, or the author doesn’t know the correct times.

Then there is this scene that makes no sense to me:

“She had run to a window and marveled at the scene outside. She had never seen such tall buildings, and the man who never smiled told her that one day every city in the world would look like this. She laughed and told him not to be silly, that there were too many beautiful buildings in the world for them all to be knocked down. He had looked somber and he told her that what men had made, men would destroy.’’

I stayed with the book to the end to see how it would all work out, but too many times I rolled my eyes. The book is labeled a thriller. I would label it a comedy.

Menendez Scandal!

I am sick of this administration running out the clock on every scandal. Now, we haven’t gotten to the bottom of the Menendez scandal of taking bribes and flying to prostitutes, and we have a former admin. spokesman saying, ““There’s a point at which you’ve milked a story so much you look like withered boob. Move on,” Hari Sevugan tweeted.

It’s a terrible analogy.
