Aha Moment

After slowly traveling the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico  border zig-zagging back & forth between countries, I thought -- "Aha! There is a skinny 3rd country between the two larger countries. Much of my work since then has incorporated this notion.


  1. There are 2 treatments floating around Hollywood that deserve attention. One is about Wolfman Jack, and the other is about 3 Mexican Campesinos who were tortured by ranchers as they crossed into the U.S. I can't get either story out of my head and I'd be pleased to be associated with either one.
  2. If any of your listeners think they have a book in them, then put everything else aside and start typing!
