This memoir, by the award winning journalist and best selling author Kurt Eichenwald tells the story of his struggle with epilepsy. I want to see how somebody else … Continue reading A Mind Unraveled
Today I got an email from Amazon saying something about the prize of my Amazon prime subscription. "Oh cool, Amazon Prime... when did I get Amazon prime"? That's right, I never got it, that wasn't me. So for the first time in my life I think someone hacked my account. I didn't even think this … Continue reading Why would anyone want to hack me?

We went back into the Wizarding World for the ninth time, but this time we went back in time to 1926 in New York City.
