My Totally Cool Friend: Keith Bates!

Posted by on in Entertainment
I just moved from Big Bear City, CA. I lived there for 3 years. Despite all of the beauty and grandeur, my favorite part was getting to be friends with Keith Bates. In many ways he is the quintessential American man. If anyone has read the Hobbit, Keith to me is Tom Bombadill. He is an unageing Adam. He is Kerouac's modern day Cassidy. He may not even really be from this planet. But here is a video of my friend doing what he does everyday in some way or the other: Keith has fun!Keith skis, surfs, hikes, bikes, sails,...

Hope for Addicts by Keith Angelin

Posted by on in General
I know what it’s like to die from an overdose of drugs and alcohol. If there is hope for me, there is hope for you too. Spend a few moments reading this short letter. Then if you still believe you are so different from me, toss it in the trash. But I don’t think you will. Despite my best efforts I survived ten years of hardcore substance abuse. I was addicted to alcohol, cocaine, meth, GHB, Vicodin, Percodan, Percocet, Norco, ecstasy and marijuana. I spent over $100 a day, 7-days a week on drugs, and was the kind of alcoholic that...

Veteran Injustice: Sign of Things to Come?

Posted by on in News
The caption beneath this photo refers to the cost of "cheap patriotism." And the bereft wife and two small children in this drawing apply to what just happened. A hard working, honest San Diego US Navy veteran that has been profiled in People Magazine has been just evicted from his apartment. Greg, his wife and 3 kids returned from church this morning to find a moving truck pulling away with all of their belongings. “Hey, what’s going on?” Greg called out to the driver as he was driving away. “All I know is that we are taking this stuff to a...

San Blas: A Short Story

Posted by on in Entertainment
When I was thirteen, I entered Laguna Beach High School.  It was the 60's and the school district just hired a new principal who had a lot of crazy liberal ideas about teaching. They took 20 of the top test scoring students and put them in a special class. They made us do all sorts of weird stuff. Once, we went down into a basement with no windows below the auditorium stage with the crew-cut football coach. He turned off all of the lights and it was a lot blacker than black ever was. Then he turned on the most advante...

Open Letter to My Dying Dad: An Artist

Posted by on in For Families
I know that this letter is very personal.  But I also know that almost all of us hold resentments against our parents. We harbor hurt feelings and anger. I would have told you that I "hated" my father for most of my youth. That was a terrible thing to do. So I share this as an old man talking to his dying father, so that maybe some of you will avoid carrying and causing useless pain. -- Jesus says " Come unto me all of you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest."    Dear Dad, ...

Citizens Helping Veterans: 'One Day' Jobs

Posted by on in News
The most effective social networking will always be grassroots, people sharing with their friends, neighbors and colleagues. In my case the growth of HirePatriots.com is largely due to just that. This is an example of how it happens: Let's say an elderly widow, a senior citizen, is cleaning her house and garage and needs a lot of boxes and heavy stuff taken to either the dump or to a storage facility. She cannot do this chore herself. She needs at least one strong man, maybe it had better be two men. She posts the job for free on HirePatriots.com. She describes...

Today is Patriot Day

Posted by on in News
After 9/11 this day was set apart for US citizens to remember those that died on this day in 2001. But we must now also include those killed and wounded since that fight began. Here are some horrific numbers that our dear sons and daughters have suffered since, and it breaks my heart to list them! Nearly 7,000 U.S. men and women have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan in the last decade.  Over 50,000 have been wounded. 16,000 are "severely wounded" and will need life-time care.  1,700 major limb amputations have occurred. Over 1,900 have suffered genital wounds from...
