Strange Deaths at The Cecil Hotel
The Cecil Hotel opened in 1924 in the skid row area of downtown Los Angeles. The once upscale 700-room hotel became a budget motel and then a rooming house known for housing undesirables, drug use, and crime.

You're in My Way, You Need to Die
I am currently sitting in a hospital room after spending three days in ICU recovering from injuries received in a horrific car accident due to some one unable to control their emotions and rage. This rage was borne out of the fact that I was driving the speed limit in the middle lane on a major freeway in Dallas and trying to change lanes with my blinker on. I simply was in their way, and not going as fast as they wanted to go, so hence, I deserved to die. I deserved to die because I existed. Because I was in their way.
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.
