A story published in OMNI concerning the Superconducting Supercollider that might have been. This story originally appeared in OMNI, November 1992. Author's Note: This story concerns a future in which Congress continued funding for the SSC, which of course did not happen in our timeline, where instead of gravity's angel we have a large, mostly empty tunnel beneath the Texas plains. I would also remind the reader that all stories take place in alternate realities, perhaps, as David Deutsch maintains, among an infinite number of them.
I do not know what your definition of a man is, but without exploration, neither do you. We are taught what it is to be a man, sometimes by women or grown boys. We are shown what we should act like every time we turn on the TV or listen to music. We follow the same grown boys who follow the same messages. We are taught to believe we’re becoming men based off how well we emulate others who mirror what they see. The Earth was once said to be flat, and everyone alive knew that to be true.
The Earth being flat was not an opinion, it was a fact. Further examination, research and thought proved that, and count other “facts” to be wrong. Similarly, we all think things to be true, and live by them without considering that we have been taught wrong. This is an opportunity for that consideration. There are 52 different topics presented. Each topic shows an example of how a boy might behave, VS a man in the same situation. This book is designed in a way unlike most books. It is designed in a way where you have the power. Insight given in this book welcomes criticism and invites readers to come to their own conclusions, instead of traditional readings that present theories or opinions as fact. This is not an attempt to have you agree with me, but rather have you become more secure in what your definition of a man is.
Walt Whitman experienced the agonies of the Civil War firsthand, working, in his forties, as a dedicated volunteer throughout the conflict in Washington's overcrowded, understaffed military hospitals. This superb selection of his poems, letters, and prose from the war years, filled with the sights and sounds of war and its ugly aftermath, express a vast and powerful range of emotions. Among the poems include here, first published in Drum-Taps (1865) and Sequel to Drum-Taps (1866), are a number of Whitman's most famous works: "O Captain! My Captain!" "The Wound-Dresser," "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd," and "Come Up from the Fields, Father." The letters and prose selections, including Whitman's musings on the publication of his works, on the wounded men he tended, and his impressions of Lincoln traveling about the city of Washington, offer keen insights into an extraordinary era in American history.

This is the year 2001, but 23 years ago in 1978 in a Texas prison something happened that no one outside the prison knew anything about. In October 1978, the Texas Department of Corrections (TDC) Director, W.
J. Estelle, imposed a News Blackout (a form of media censorship) on the TDC Department of Operations concerning a prisoner riot at one of the TDC units that included hundreds of inmates and which resulted in many injuries to the prisoners. The State of Texas never released any information on the casualties and never really admitted anything ever happened. Charles Cofield the author, survived the 14-hour prisoner riot in October 1978 at the TDC in which a news blackout (a form of media censorship) was imposed. The author of this book relates the true story of what really happened during this prison riot, and which has never been told to the public. Charles Cofield has many things to say concerning whether convicts can be rehabilitated inside a prison. The author says, "The prison as I knew it will not rehabilitate anyone; those who succeed, rehabilitate themselves; they do it in spite of the prison." The author spent four years doing hard time in prison and is one of the very few inmates of such prisons who successfully turned around his life on his own.
What would happen if three hundred hardened convicts petitioned the United States Government for an abandoned island where, accompanied by their families, they would be set free to earn their own way? Overwhelmed by prison budgets and prison riots, the government agrees and sets the prisoners free on windswept, tree Adak in the Aleutians, the site of a former 'hard duty' Navy station. Prisoners Of The Williwaw is the story of the power struggle between the idealistic leader of this expedition, convict Frank Villa, and a smooth prison boss, James T. Gilmore. Frank Villa opens a school, arranges jobs for people in a small assembly factory and calls for free elections.
'Boss' Gilmore opens a house of prostitution, sells booze, drugs, and guns, and schemes to take over the island one way or another. Frank's struggle is internal as well as external. He strives to overcome the effects of prison on his psyche. A convict must be passive; a man in charge of a community must take command. A convict must build a wall inside himself against any relationship with a woman; a free man has to leave himself open to love. The strife between Villa and Gilmore accelerates when their wives arrive and unexpected complications develop. These conflicts play out against a backdrop of constant rain, vicious windstorms (williwaws), escape attempts, and a coup by a new group of prisoners from the federal penitentiary in Florence, Colorado, the worst of the worst.
