    I was born. I know this is not a big deal to most people, but…well…it’s essential to my site. And I was born to write. Naturally, if I were an historic celebrity like William Wallace (the real Braveheart, not Mel Gibson), Anne Boleyn, or Thomas Moore you’d read their stories long before reading about some Jewish guy from Brooklyn who was raised…really confused. Wait…I’m suddenly wondering if choosing these celebrities disguises a subliminal message—they were each beheaded. Odd. Regardless, there’s a good chance that my life’s stories might elicit a comment like, “That’s bullshit; he had to make that up.”

    Really? It’s cruel and insensitive comparing my writing to the excrement of a bull—I mean, I’m opening my soul and sharing fragile emotions here! But, I can excuse that. You see, I know that my stories are true. I was there. And I’m convinced that once you read them you’ll agree with my retort to those brave souls (suckers) who—after reading my many drafts over the years—responded with, “Kagan, that’s bullshit; you had to make that up.”

    Believe me, you can’t make this shit up!

        I have a good friend in Minneapolis who refers to herself as a ‘bohemian.’  She is the colorful outcome of  mixed marriage. Delightful and lovely in so many ways, I was puzzled by her portraying her self-prescribed ‘bohemistic…
