Stodghill Says So

An opinionated posting on a variety of subjects by a former newspaper reporter and columnist whose daily column was named best in Indiana by UPI. The Blog title is that used in his high school sports predictions for the Muncie Evening Press.

At the age of 18 I was a 4th Infantry Division rifleman in the invasion of Normandy, then later was called back for the Korean War. Put in a couple of years as a Pinkerton detective. Much of my life was spent as a newspaper reporter, sports writer and daily columnist. Published three books on high school sports in Ohio and Indiana. I write mystery fiction for Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and others. Three books, Normandy 1944 - A Young Rifleman's War, The Hoosier Hot Shots, and From Devout Catholic to Communist Agitator are now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers. So are four collections of short mysteries: Jack Eddy Stories Volumes 1 and 2, Midland Murders, and The Rough Old Stuff From Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine.

A New Beginning

As a blogger I've been a complete failure thanks to a heavy workload of writing projects - three books published this year, three short stories sold. So from now on things will be different. Short blogs written regularly, that's my new goal.
You would think that after suffering through an election - putting up with ugly yard signs, mailboxes overflowing with campaign flyers, mud-slinging Tv commercials - we'd be entitled to a lengthy break from politics. Those of us naive enough to believe such a thing were wrong. Before all the votes were even counted some politicians began announcing plans to run for president in 2008.
Well, guys and gals in Washington, I'm going to borrow a phrase from those wrestlers known as Degeneration X and say, "I've got two words for Ya: Shut Up!"
We don't want to hear it. We've had it up to here with politics. A year from now, OK. But for now the only one who wants to hear it is Wolf Blitzer. And you shut up, too, Wolf.
