Crime is not supposed to pay, but it sure seems it does to me...I mean it does to I.

Famous people seem to be seeking anonymity after they have achieved too much fame.

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1
