I'm flattered. Thank you very much. If anybody is interested I can supply a URL for the obituary I wrote for the beast when he died...

The death of Fidel Castro on November 26th, 2016, should have inaugurated a new era in Cuba, but unfortunately, Fidel's equally evil brother Raul is now in charge. But he's 87, so hopefully he will be following his brother soon.

No need to apologize for well written rants.

I agree with your sentiment about not wanting to line the leaders' pockets...Would that some kind of deal can be made to make a film Without paying blackmail to the government...is that too much wishful thinking?

What next after ranking my novels?

I know!!! Let's rank the Seven Deadly Sins from Favorite to No Fun At All. After that, we can rank the 10 Commandments from "Easy to Obey" to "Never Obey".

Then we can .. . ..

I hear you, and believe me it was a space problem more than anything, that it didn't follow along like that. I had, "Ranking Dan Simmons' Books and the Sexiest Actresses," but shortened it.

I would have preferred "Ranking Sexiest Simmons Books", but the Seven Deadly Sins will do...

Personally, I loved all of Dan's books and, may I add, several of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Whoa! Being on this forum is such an eye-opener. Fool that I was, all this time I thought the Seven Deadly Sins weren't even an option.

Some say that Number 2 (6?) was mistranslated...it was supposed to say, Thou shall not MURDER. Killing was ok, happened all the time.
