Results: I had my first magazine article printed in a National Association type of magazine. The editor was so pleased with this article that he asked me to write more articles for the association. Suddenly I have become a magazine writer and photographer.

Reaction: I had many comments at Chamber of Commerce meetings and luncheons. 
Conclusion: Just because people have a very successful business, it doesn't mean that they know every money making method that was available.

24 October 1987 "Stop Pushing Sex on TV." This article was printed in the Sacramento Bee in the Encore section. This article was a commentary on the October 11th episode of, "Star Trek. The Next Generation," where the entire crew became ill with an unknown disease causing everyone to go crazy. Many of the crew members became obsessed with sex. Data came staggering into the room apparently having a wild time. 

Purpose: I was concerned with the increase in promiscuous sex affecting not only our youth, but also myself and other adults. One statement that I made was, "We already have a problem with homosexuality is our next movement going to be bestiality?" 
My recorder was completely filled with violent threats from homosexuals. I had an old Radio Shack answering machine with a 90 minute cassette. It was filled to the end of the tape. Interestingly the last two calls were from a lady who said that she has a young girl just entering high school and that she was worried about her girls future. The machine timed her out so she called again to finish what she had to say, then the tape ran out. 
Conclusion: It's obvious, many homosexuals do not like anyone else to have a right of free speech. If a non homosexual speaks up against them, they will smash your house and kill your kids, among just about anything that you can imagine. I wish I would have kept that tape so I could show you a transcript from it!!!

24 July 1986 "How to be Rich Inside and Happy at Work." This article was printed in the "Intercom" the base newspaper for the Sacramento Army Depot. This article showed a list of forty things to do to improve yourself inside and in your workplace. 

Purpose: Our country is lacking in a consistent, uniform standard of morality. This article, "Which was a derivative of one of Joe Cossman's works covered the basic moral standards which make people happy and successful. 
I found copies of this article pinned up all over the base on bulletin boards and taped to many workers benches. Four years after this article was printed, there were copies of it still floating around various work areas. 
Conclusion: People do want guideline, and if more articles were published covering this area, it would be a good "lasting" thing.
