Adoptionopoly...The Board Game You Play in the Dark is a satire, modeled loosely on the board game "Monopoly", that highlights the frustrations experienced by adult adoptees who are trying to search for their origins.
Thoughtful Essays. Most of these essays present novel, practical solutions to vexing chronic problems. Topics include polygraph evidence, education reform, science education, tobacco regulation, corporate downsizing, employee stock ownership, and fragmentation of the environmentalist movement. Others, such as "Jewish Social Conscience", simply share insights into why things are as they are.
Original Song Lyrics. Some funny, some cynical, some sentimental. They generate a nice flow of e-mail - some complimentary, some angry - but none (so far) from composers who'd like to collaborate.
Satire, Humor and Wit. Convention buries many subjects in euphemism. I step right up and call a spade an entrenching tool. "Toxic Wells, NJ" seems to be the most popular piece.
