Rick Fontain was drafted into the U.S. Army at the height of the Vietnam War. As a draftee, he could expect a rapid trip to Southeast Asia. Except, his test answers and attitude, in the first week of Basic Training seem to have placed him on an entirely different career path.
My reviews of various entertainment
After a year at war, Miyoko Hikiji wrote a memoir that spans the traditional literary genres. It is a very real account of a tour in Iraq, complete with the dust, blood and tears. It is also a moving narrative of people reaching out to one another in a time of crisis for comfort, support and love.
The still curiously named SyFy channel has imported a Canadian series titled Lost Girl and it is showing Mondays at 10 pm EST. Similar to the import of the first season of Sanctuary, the channel has snagged an existing quirky show that is a modest hit for its ever changing lineup.
Guy Kawasaki is among the foremost experts on using social media such as Twitter and Facebook to monetize your business. I was offered the chance to read and review his latest book, Enchantment, and was sent a hardcopy by his people so that I could.
The notion of enchantment as a sales and marketing tool is, well, enchanting. It calls to mind bespelling the other person. That is not what Kawasaki means by his use of the word.
