David Boyne and X Marks the Spot (archived)
David Boyne, humorist and essayist, has failed at everything he has tried. Including parenting, marriage, college, gainful employment, algebra, buying low and selling high, mixing red wine with tequila, riding a bicycle across America, and staying perpendicularly tangential to the gutter. At one time he considered becoming a better person. But when told identity theft was illegal, he abandoned the idea. When not writing about his failures, he boldly stares into Space, schemes for Total World Domination, and exposes himself in public at DavidBoyne.com.
Blessed are the peacemakers...
a white cop, a black kid
Arnold Penxa is a white cop from black Detroit, Michigan determined to save the lives of children no matter the cost, no matter the color. He is an ex war veteran and retired Detroit policeman, now working for a private school security firm,and he sniffs out a conspiracy for a multiple school shooting. The problem is that nobody wants to believe him except for a few close friends, so he's forced to act mostly alone to bust up the plot. Forget the usual suspects. This is the Mad Motor City where the line between common sense and criminal behavior is never clear.
