Ah Sarcasm and H.L. Mencken.

I scared myself.  With my sarcastic look at life, I may grow up to be the Twenty-first Century H.L. Mencken.    Mencken, the scribe of Baltimore.  (There have been other Baltimore scribes, they do have a newspaper you know, it’s called the Baltimore Sun; even if they do have to share services with the Washington Post).  Oh to be Baltimore, in the shadow of our Nations Capital.  What would H.L. have thought of the Orioles and the Ravens?  You could say both are for the birds.

Not sure this is such a good idea, as I am probably too easygoing to be him and I am Jewish.  Yes, H.L. for all his brilliant writing was a retrograde racist.

I should probably stick with Mark Twain and Monty Python.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.

    You can write like him but not emulate him.
