Sturbridge Times Magazine is out, Shameless Self-Promotion-August edition

It is August and the drought appears to be over.  The garden is yielding nicely.  What else could one ask for, but the Sturbridge Times Magazine?  It is out and my humble prose is in it. 

Future Babble is a book about the sad truth.  Dan Gardner tells it.  You don't know diddly about where you are going to spend the rest of your life, the future.  Scary, yes, yet we humans seek people to tell us what is going to happen.  They are almost always wrong.  Still, we keep going to that poisoned well.   Read my review on Page 9

Howard's Drive-In in West Brookfield is a timeless institution serving food in the warmer months.  On Page 17 I enthuse about one of my favorite places.  Unfortunately, a mistake was made in going to press and the article title has the name as Harold's Drive-In.  Ignore that, it's Howard's

So, how's the war going in Afghanistan and who is winning?  Funny you should ask.  Not who you think.  My column explores the question on Page 20.

This is the second Month that articles are published with my pen name, Richard Morchoe.  So I hope you will look for that moniker in the articles.

I'm not the only one who writes for the Sturbridge Times Magazine.  There are many other articles for your reading pleasure.  So look for it on a newstand.  If you don't find one, you can download a pdf at http://sturbridgetimes.com.
