As you can read here This paper also got me an award and some money. And I've decided to post it here in rookiedad, because there is nowhere else to post it, in hopes that maybe one day, someone researching corruption in Mexico will actually run into it... and read it... and use it?
So I wrote this paper for my National Security class last year. Then I won an award with it (and 1000 buckaroos). And then some student who saw this article mentioned that he couldn't find my paper anywhere, and could I please send him a copy to discuss in his class in Old Dominion University (wow, cool... students discussing my paper!). I had hopes of publishing this (for more money, of course). Still do. But in the meantime... wouldn't it be nice if my work actually started being cited! One can dream. So... Yo! Google Scholar web robots, come index this!
(Oh right... nope, this has nothing whatsoever to do with rookiedadding...)
This one got published... but not in a real, papery magazine. On the upside, I guess that means if the angry masses wanted to burn it, they'd have to print it first. But that would be too much trouble. Anyway, its about leadership, and ethics, and writing, and something that happened when I was in Iraq.
This one is about the time I ran 25 miles up a mountain in Oregon... and 25 miles back down. It was published in Marathon & Beyond (September 2008 Issue) under the title "Is this Cool?"
The guy in the picture? Most definitely NOT me.
This one chronicles my first sailing vacation... and the attempts made by a hurricane to spoil it. It was published in the July 2001 issue of Chesapeake Bay Magazine under the title of "Three Against the Storm - A wild Ride."
This one is about the time I ran three marathons in three days (yes... consecutive days). The story was published under the title of "Three Times One Equals more than Three" in Marathon & Beyond (October 2003 Issue)... the cover shown to the right is not from the correct issue.
