Three weeks later, the EPA had announced it was no longer consulting scientists, Ferguson had announced there would be no indictments, and I sat in my massage chair numb to America, getting the gluten kneaded out of my back fat. Everything I saw, from Republicans suing Obama over immigration reform to the script for our second episode, where ODB is appropriated to teach Young Eddie how to make it rain, made absolutely no sense. 17 I told them that Wu Tang’s Ol’ Dirty Bastard came way before “making it rain,” but, alas, no one cared. But in my post-Thanksgiving slumber, I turned on the Michigan–Ohio State game. Since Desmond Howard did the Heisman, I’ve been a Wolverines fan. They’ve been hot trash recently, but I still hold out hope … BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN A PROMO FOR YOUR LIFE STORY IS GOING TO RUN ON ABC DURING THE GAME WHEN YOU ARE TAKING BONG RIPS.
What a great episode! One general question posed was what if you could talk directly with a bad/evil person to find out why it is they do the bad things that they do? There is one book that can give insight to this inquiry. Final Truth : The Autobiography of a Serial Killer: Donald H. Gaskins. This book chilled me to the bone. Written in Gaskin's first person perspective on the condition that the book be published after his death, Gaskins talks about his crimes in great detail in an obvious unapologetic tone. I felt that this book gave me an insight to this killer's mind and scared me to death. (No pun intended!)
1 Historical review: Some topics are better understood if a brief historical review of the topic is presented to lead into the discussion of the moment. Such topics might include "a biographical sketch of a war hero," "an upcoming execution of a convicted criminal," or "drugs and the younger generation." Obviously there are many, many more topics that could be introduced by reviewing the history of the topic before the writer gets down to the nitty gritty of his paper. It is important that the historical review be brief so that it does not take over the paper.
