The smart money says the Pirates have to win around 90 games this season to make the playoffs. More on this later.
Hello hello hello, all my brother and sister readers and writers of erotic flash fiction! The Old Soldier is on duty early (7:00 a.m.) this morning. The high in Pittsburgh today will be around 70 with scattered thunder showers throughout the day.
Well, I’ve finally decided to publish Donya Petrock’s erotic flash fiction of domination and submission on Friday. Erotic flash fiction about domination and submission is something new for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction.
I remember sitting at the bar in Armand’s in Little Italy telling one of the regulars, a woman, about my ambivalence in publishing the story. I told the woman what the story was about and this woman gave me some wise counsel. She said it was okay if the woman in the story had freely agreed to be submissive in the relationship. I like the fact that Donya Petrock lives in Pittsburgh.
Donya Petrock’s story of domination and submission will go live on Friday.
I continue to tweak the magazine. Search engines like a steady flow of new content. When I have featured posts stuck to the front page, it lowers the page ranking of the magazine. I like the idea of featured posts on the front page. But for the time being there will be no more featured posts on the front page. I have to do what is best for the magazine, best for my readers and best for my writers.
Last night I dozed on the sofa with the Pirates on the radio. It was a home game and the team played Baltimore. The Pirates lost 9 to 2. Then I listened to the review of the game and I have to tell you the prognosis for the rest of the season is not good.
The commentators pointed out that the Pirates were now 18 and 26 for the season. That the team would have to win around 90 games to make the playoffs and that the team gave no indication that it could win 90 games. And time was running out.
This is not the Old Soldier saying this. This prognosis comes from people who make their money reporting on the game.
I hope these people are wrong.
