In a collection of short stories composed of laments, commentaries, musings and rants, Life: Such As It Is looks with unbridled elucidation at a variety of topics. It cogitates society?s newly found ?political correctness? which provided liars, cheaters, bad singers and untalented actors with excuses, apologies, and acceptances they would never merited had we all not lost our minds! In the words of the author: We make the life we have, and to sit around and gripe about the crappy stuff that happens to us because we?ve made bad or stupid choices is utter nonsense. We were so busy bringing "Sexy" back, that we forgot all about self-respect, an honest day?s work, truth, decency, and responsibility for screwing up. We need to bring those back!
