On Nov. 1st, 1989, The New York Times published my piece on FEMA and paid me a few hundred bucks for it, quite a sum at the time, I thought. I also sold columns to The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Denver Post, and so many to The Houston Post that I fear I may be the cause of their going out of business.Also many smaller newspapers printed my stuff for a long time.
I also have an aerospace business, which you can find at cookaerospace.com. It seems I have certain skills as a technical writer that enable me to obtain patents perhaps more easily and cheaply than other folks. Ideas have always come readily to me, but getting the best ideas into the proper venue where they might actually become profitable seems to be the hardest trick in the world.
I have two books out that concern criminal justice, the comfy government career I finally settled into out of sheer desperation at the prospect of growing old without a pension. WHY THE INNOCENT PLEAD GUILTY AND THE GUILTY GO FREE can be easily googled, and my more conventional text book type of thing from a division of Nova Science publishing titled:
MAXIMUM DISTRUST, UNUSUAL STORIES OF INJUSTICE, UNBALANCED THINKING, AND MOB PSYCHOLOGY IN AMERICA.
