This death ritual is an excerpt from my book Becoming Dead Right: A Hospice Volunteer in Urban Nursing Homes, which shares my insights and hospice volunteer experiences in Detroit nursing homes. In a chapter titled "Death Sentences," I relate the fascinating end-of-life journey of my hospice patient named Lelia. The afterlife is referred to as the Other Side of Through.

Jesus is My Pimp Daddy generated some spirited dialogue on the Net. While written with underlying sardonic humor, the topic is a serious one and the narrative reflects actual events.

Rounding out the posse was legendary courtesan, Mary Magdalene. She was as good with the books as… Continue

History: At an early age, Gregg Scott Luce was falsely led to believe that his Maine based blood line was directly connected to the storied Time-Life Henry Luce legacy. It's unclear whether this fallacy was instilled within him by personal dementia or a… Continue
