Delaware State began as a school bent on service - teaching education, social services and nursing.Michael N. Castle

Before I became a full-time writer, I worked in tech support in those giant cubicle farms you see.

When I began playing the game, baseball was about as gentlemanly as a kick in the crotch.Ty Cobb
