Pirates Of The Boudreauxs.
Cameron didn’t know where they were going just yet, but straight was the only direction that felt worth heading in. It had been hours since they passed any sign of city life, and it was only getting darker as they drove. The smell of burning rubber and asphalt on the desert road was the only thing keeping him alert at this point. A repetitive clicking had been ringing in his ear for a while, it was hard to ignore at first, but Cam had become engulfed in the road. The patterned white lines in the middle of the highway and the dilated pupils of his eyes were now in sync. The white line fever had taken him. He was stuck in a trance, trying to make sense of how they both ended up here. Tara never planned for this lifestyle either, but she was always optimistic.

On April 13th, 1994, at 4:44 A.M., I was born in the city known as Nashua, New Hampshire. Awarded the title of "Best Place to Live" not once but twice, one would imagine that it is a great place to raise a family with next to no crime. To the folks in my age group, the aforementioned statement is laughable at best. I suppose that if you turn a blind eye to the blatantly obvious social atrocities that are taking place, they do not exist.
Her lips quivering, sweating bullets, on her knees, hands straight up in the air, like an owl, turns her head 360 degrees to find herself in the middle of a Cambodian police squad that circled her. Each one, gun pointed and caulked straight at her. She, begging for justice!
Tanzania, a beautiful country. Full of rich culture, exciting events, and dangerous animals, but not even the Lions are as dangerous as the animals I encountered.
An Abdication of Responsibility

Kong Senior and Junior are accused of facilitating the illegal entry of numerous foreign nationals over a number of years, through the park into Canada.

Disney World and Criminology
Even the seemingly definitive tagline, "The Happiest Place on Earth" is conditional, once we swap the Mickey Mouse ears for our thinking caps.
Freedom on Alcatraz Island
The once-familiar sounds of doors clanging shut did not make me cringe or dredge up suppressed memories. Instead, they had the curious effect of bringing me a sense of peace. Integrating a difficult past into a present inextricably intertwined with a single impulsive action committed long ago can be hard. Many people that have been to prison allow their imprisonment to become their identity; you become known as a felon when convicted. Yet the process of reintegration after a long stretch of incarceration often means reconciling the two. And it was this reconciliation that took place during my recent trip to Alcatraz.
