You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone… Police academy cadet Charlie Burns can’t believe his luck when the gorgeous blonde he meets in a bar murmurs those magic words: “Nothing serious, ’kay?” Mind-blowing, no-strings sex with Ever Carmichael—it’s the holy grail of hookups for a guy who’s too busy following in his law enforcement family’s footsteps to think about getting serious. Charlie’s all about casual…that is, until Ever calls it quits and his world tilts on its axis. Ever knows that when you control the relationship game, you can’t get played. But for the first time, she wants more than short-term satisfaction. Step one: end her fling with commitment-phobic Charlie. Step two: sacrifice herself to the ruthless NYC dating scene. Yet everywhere she turns, there’s Charlie, being his ridiculously charming self. No online match or blind date compares to the criminally hot cop-in-training, but they’re over. Aren’t they? If love is a four-letter-word, why does the idea of Ever seeing someone else tie Charlie up in knots? Now he’s desperate to win her back…and a little date sabotage never hurt anyone, right?

Professional organizer Maggie McDonald manages to balance a fastidious career with friends, family, and a spunky Golden Retriever. But add a fiery murder mystery to the mix, and Maggie wonders if she’s finally found a mess even she can’t tidy up . . . With a devastating wildfire spreading to Silicon Valley, Maggie preps her family for a rapid evacuation. The heat rises when firefighters discover the body of her best friend Tess Olmos’s athletic husband—whose untimely death was anything but accidental. And as Tess agonizes over the whereabouts of her spouse’s drop-dead gorgeous running mate, she becomes the prime suspect in what's shaping up to become a double murder case. Determined to set the record straight, Maggie sorts through clues in an investigation more dangerous than the flames approaching her home.

Arrested For Swearing

Disorderly conduct statutes have long been used as a "catch all," allowing officers to arrest those engaging in merely annoying speech. In Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, the Supreme Court mandated that states can only criminalize speech that rises to the level of "fighting words," which by their very utterance tend to incite violence. Since Chaplinsky in 1942, many state courts have "saved" their disorderly conduct statutes by judicially construing them to prohibit only "fighting words." In "fixing" these statutes, the courts have ordered that speech must constitute "fighting words" without mandating that the statutory language be amended. This approach is problematic, leaving laws intact that over-proscribe speech. Minnesota's disorderly conduct statute still allows for a conviction based solely on "offensive, obscene, or abusive language tending reasonably to arouse alarm, anger or resentment in others." This project urges Minnesota to amend its statutory language so that an unconstitutional law is not enforced as written. My investigation uncovered that Minnesota's peace officers are trained to follow the statutory language without consideration of "fighting words." Unfortunately the discretion provided by this overbroad statute creates opportunities for discriminatory enforcement based on, for example, race or age. Minnesota should explicitly amend its statute to only prohibit speech that rises to the level of "fighting words," providing clarity to limit potentially discriminatory enforcement.

(A) collection of hilarious outtakes from courtroom situations. . . . The humor derives from laypersons--prisoners, witnesses, jurors--who produce a wealth of banalities and faux pas, or from lawyers and judges, whose pomposity and long-windedness beg to be deflated.--Booklist.

LIVE VERSE is fast-moving underdog poetry that has its own view of humanity's disorderly conduct as it deals with love and politics, music and baseball, hard times and corporate greed. Live Verse is conversational, down-to-earth poetry with a bemused view of the world from the bottom looking up. It reflects the author's life as an often-out-of work traveling musician whose resume of odd jobs is way past colorful. For music lovers the bonus is a first-hand account of the boisterous journey of American popular music from ragtime to rap. Live Verse comes from America's bars, ballparks and truck stops. From a country music bar in Anchorage, Alaska and from a jazz joint on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans. It comes from an all-night diner in Bakersfield where the juke box is playing Merle Haggard's "The Bottle Let Me Down." It comes from Dodger Stadium on the day that every baseball player wears number 42 to honor Jackie Robinson. It comes from a bus depot in Cincinnati where a mute TV shows President Obama speaking in front of the presidential seal and two American flags while a few distracted travelers sit staring at the screen and wonder if any of it matters. It comes from every union hall that celebrates the American wage slave who creates our prosperity but is still fighting for a fair share of it. It comes from the Capitol steps in Washington, D.C., where some noisy demonstrators brave snow flurries to wave signs declaring that capitalism is the legitimate racket of the ruling class and that Wall Street is a high crime area. At the same time, on the floor of the Senate, a senator from an oil patch state shows off a snow ball and declares global warming to be a hoax. A keen observer of political absurdities, the author claims that "politics has gone from bad to verse" and goes on to prove it. For the reader who is trying to make sense of mankind's twenty-first century mess and doesn't know whether to laugh or cry, LIVE VERSE is here to help.
