Thank you, You've made a huge, positive impact for the good.
Justise Winslow the next Michael Kidd-Gilchrist don't @ me
they just don't understand that Justise Winslow is properly tanking. He's loyal and fully committed.
Why does he get one and I don't? Send me the Winslow jersey instead and we'll call it even.
if you ever send me "k" I WILL leave you on read. don't test me
Donald Winslow Retires as News Photographer Editor. I worked for at both NP and "24 Hours." Godspeed
I don't know. Conley is a great defender. Duke would be good in transition though with Parker, Winslow, Mason, and Kyrie.

Thank you Don for all your work with the NPPA.
Don't put Dragic in the same sentence. Dragic has been producing. Winslow only had one good game as a Heat.
Don't doubt your courage. Let yourself attempt something huge and you can be proud no matter what happens.
I don't think there is a technical term for the phenomena. The closest approximation would be "The Judy Winslow Effect."
Man, I don't see that at all. This might be worse than your Winslow/Harden comparison.
I don't like it, that's why, you fight, if Winslow and company are gonna be this bad, what the *** is a draft pick gonna do?
I'm good at pretending I don't have a heart
I know Heat have been bad but I really don't like them adding a top 5 pick in this draft to Richardson, Winslow, Johnson, Whiteside
I really, REALLY don't like watching Justise Winslow.
I'm rooting for Winslow & his development but don't think he'll stick around 🙁😔

If you ever saw Veda Scott and Greg Iron's cage match, I don't think the table broke in that.
I don't think she should of stepped in her face.
Don't want to judge Justise Winslow too soon but his offensive game is non-existent.
don't forget kellen Winslow jr since we are talking Miami
"Everyone wants to be loved. Nobody wants to get hurt. But you don't get to have one without the possibility of the other."
Dragic, Whiteside, and Winslow don't finish season in Miami. Boogie does.

Don't watch the Heat enough to really know, but amazed that there's anything Winslow could do to make up for how bad he is offensively.

Not sure I like Winslow-Kawhi comparisons. I don't think Winslow will be what Kawhi is in offense
if the right deal is offered and we don't lose Winslow, you think we trade Whiteside?
People don't give Winslow enough credit for his role on the Heat, he comes out and guards the other teams best player night in and might out

Congrats on the 60 From what I've seen I don't think it will be the last time you hit that mark
K won't don't it. Winslow had a couple blatant trips/kicks last year and he didn't. should be suspended at least a game

Winslow House was last on Wright Plus in 1977. Don’t miss out on the chance to tour this private home:

Box score watchers will say Winslow is trash but they don't watch him play defense and they don't watch the little things he does off ball
I don't think you can trust the judgment of anyone who chose to live in Miami of their own volition

I don't. Just saying I like it. Pek is a nice complement to Bosh. Opens up time for Winslow. He has a big upside.
everyone focusing on Winslow, I don't see them trading Bosh... would kill the stance on "loyalty" they've had since Bron left
I don't know how good Winslow's going to be. I'm high on him, but is he a future 1st team/2nd team All-NBA guy?
With the Heat's shortage of picks, I don't see how they could part with Winslow.
Don't really see a need to trade for Winslow unless we trading Fournier too.
The only way we get Melo is we trade Winslow...and yeah...no...I don't wanna give up our future.
Sometimes you just don't know when you're standing on a corner in Winslow, AZ.

Savages (2012 film) Cast Taylor Kitsch as Chon. Savages is a 2012 American crime thriller film directed by Oliver Stone. It is based on the novel of the same name by Don Winslow. The screenplay was written by Shane Salerno, Winslow and Stone. The film was released on July 6, 2012, and stars Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Demian Bichir, Benicio del Toro, Salma Hayek, John Travolta, and Emile Hirsch. Plot Best friends John (Taylor Kitsch) and Ben (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) are marijuana growers living in Laguna Beach, California. Chon, a former Navy SEAL, smuggled the seeds for the plants out of Afghanistan, and got help in cultivating them from Ben, a graduate of University of California, Berkeley in business and botany. These seeds yielded a particularly potent strain of marijuana that soon developed a wide customer base and made Chon and Ben very wealthy, with Ben devoting time and money to doing charity work in Africa and Asia. The two are in a polyamorous relationship with Ophelia Sage ...

My Journey to Recovery Day 8 (Frightened, but not alone): 4th of July – JEDI WARRIOR'S UNITE! Where does one go when they are afraid; really, really afraid. The daunting task ahead of me is often overwhelming. My eyes have dimmed, but my spirit and drive remain. With my head being shaved came a stark reality. I am a leukemia patient with a very fast growing bone marrow and blood cancer. “Why me?”, I cried. Then it occurred to me…Why NOT me? My thoughts were confirmed moments later when a couple of childhood friends John Schroeder and Gary Pape, both Dr.’s came to see me – I know them best as my brothers by choice! I chose them as family many years ago and they chose me in return. I won’t go into detail of just how they treated their faux sister, but there was a rotten egg involved with some gun powder and a wick that was rolled into my college dorm room. All I can say about that is NASTY! John & Gary told me a couple things that helped me tremendously with my…OUR battle and journ ...

4 of 5 stars to The Death and Life of Bobby Z by Don Winslow
Well I needed a calming period after my latest Don Winslow book, so I took up "Popular Crime, Reflections on the Celebration of Violence' by Bill James. James is famous for his seminal work in baseball metrics that were the subject of Moneyball. The crime book is interesting, James has a cool sense of irony and humor, and it is a truly thought provoking book about our country and its mores. Especially interesting parallels drawn between the counter-cultures of the 1960's and the early 1900's.
I could talk and watch Rockford Files for days. Bit of a masterclass in crime fiction for TV. Garner's performance is fantastic. World weary without being depressed; cool, but not trying to be or show cool. There are time I would swear the show comes form Elmore Leonard. Just a fantastic show.

Spirit Journey Youth, Diocese of Arizona: Tennyson “Come, my friends, ‘Tis not too late to seek a newer world.” We are driving around looking for someone when I ask “So, what is something you learned in our trips that you didn’t think was possible?” I really wasn’t expecting anything. It was a throw away question when there is a momentary lull in the conversation. A Native youth finally answers just when I am about to throw out an easier question. “It was after we had been to about four different businesses. There were jobs I didn’t even know existed, like running a bakery. There are so many things out there and everyone talked to me like I should be applying next week. When I turned eighteen I was all set to go do new things. It only took about two weeks until I was in the same old rut. When I turned nineteen, I thought my life was over. I am too old to try new things. Then we went to Colorado and all these new opportunities were shouting at me. So I guess I realized that new things are ...

I jumped in to do backup on Take It Easy, and then the crowd sang along. lots of fun. totally changed the mood and people are coping with the delay better. they don't call it the music city for nothing. "lighten up while you still can. don't even try to understand." he just switched to Pure Prairie League. I can do these songs too.
What’s the one book you think everyone should read? — Savages by don winslow
I'm into classics, but modern stuff: Don Winslow, Easton Ellis, Irving & Miranda July are amongst my faves.
You know what I love about summer nights in Winslow...it cools off...love the coolness at night...just don' t happen in the valley.
Jack Dempsey is one of the fighters I am studying recently because he was one of the smallest heavyweight champions ever (187 Lbs). In WW II at age 47 he volunteered and was given a commission as a Lieutenant in the New York Guard, but then left the Guard, to serve as a Lt. Commander, and eventually, Commander in the US Coast Guard. Interestingly, he not only boxed, but cross trained in judo and wrestling. “ he coauthored with Professional wrestler Bernard J. Cosneck, How to Fight Tough, which instructed Coast Guardsmen on close-quarters hand-to-hand combat incorporating boxing, wrestling and jiujitsu.”

CALIFORNIA HOME VALUES UP, UNEMPLOYMENT DOWN, BUT NOT IN THE HIGH DESERT I find it remarkable that the city/town fathers of the High Desert don’t understand the basic concept of microeconomics … knowledge they must have if they are going to do the jobs they were elected to do. Microeconomics, simply put, is the economics of an entity which is a component of a larger economic entity. The High Desert is one microeconomic entity. Many of the people I write about herein, I consider to be friends. Nonetheless, my recent conversations with our leaders have been extremely disappointing. They are so proud of their recent disastrous accomplishments and, astonishingly, are quick to take credit. Please allow me to give you a couple of examples: Walmart receives virtually all of its income from High Desert sources. From that income, profit goes to Arkansas, material expenditures go out of the High Desert (much to China), almost all operating expenses go out of the High Desert in utilities and insurance, ex ...
God is not pleased when people, especially His people, murmur and complain about their “trials and tribulations!” He also expects all of His children to walk in authority. Matter of fact there’s nothing more intimidating to the enemy then a person walking in their God given authority with boldness! That being said, we are commissioned to conduct our lives with great confidence in His plan. As Christians we are anchored to a firm foundation that will never be shaken (Isaiah 28:16). I pray you’re walking in your authority to the fullest. "Have a blessed day no matter what!" Fire in the Hole ~ Chris Clark “Dismantling Satan’s Kingdom Brick by Brick”
Well this time tomorrow I will be in Michigan starting my new life.. I'm looking forward to change. Goodbye Arizona it's been fun!!

Stuck on i40 in miles of traffic due to an accident near Holbrook, ax
Did anybody else see how nice it's going to be next week (for July and if you live in NWA)?
I have a theory about certain works of art. That theory being that they only really make sense when you're old enough to understand them. I just reread THE GREAT GATSBY - and now have moved on to THE BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED - and am finding them, at 40 (turn 41 on 25 July) far richer and more coherent than ever before. Another one along those lines is Kubrick's EYES WIDE SHUT. I maintain that movie makes absolutely no sense if you've never been in a long term relationship. And by long term, I mean longer than a couple of years. I loved it at 27 when it was released, but I'd never been in a lengthy relationship. Now, at 40, I not only love it but finally understand it.
checked off 2 bucket list items today.I was standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona. AND.I took a wrong turn in Albuquerque.it's the small things that makes life great.definitely a simple win kind of day!!!

Savages by Don Winslow, Donnybrook by Frank Bill creole belle by James lee Burke live by night by D Lehane
Savages 2012 Director: Oliver Stone Writers: Shane Salerno, Don Winslow and Oliver Stone Starring Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro and John Travolta Oliver Stone is one of my favorite modern directors but he really hasnt made a noteworthy film in my opinion since Natural Born Killers. I had heard good things about Savages so I thought I would check it out and I am glad I did. ITs a return to form for him. IT reminds me in some ways to Brian DePalma's Scarface which Stone wrote the script too especially with the character of Salma Hayek's drug lord. IT is a movie that moves at a frenetic pace and with the narration of Blake Lively's character really helps the film move along and helps you really see the point of view of all the characters very well. The plot basics are this Ben (Taylor-Johnson) and Chon (Kitsch) are very well to do pot growers who live with the beautiful O (Lively) and share their love with her and life is going great til they get contact ...

Swift Systems In On a Raven's Wing: New Tales in Honor of Edgar Allan Poe by Mary Higgins Clark, Thomas H. Cook, James W. Hall, Rupert Holmes, S. J. Rozan, Don Winslow Revealed Nearly two centuries after they were penned, Edgar Allan Poe's macabre tales are still working their eerie magic on readers of every stripe - thrill-seekers, filmmakers, even fellow writers of suspense. Collected here to honor and celebrate Poe's genius are original stories by some of the best mystery writers at work today. A son attempts to connect with his dying father in Thomas H. Cook's Nevermore. John Lutz's Poe, Poe, Poe combines elements from several of Poe's stories in a twisted tale of madness and mayhem. Poe, Jo, and I, by Don Winslow, examines the curious bond literature can form between the most unlikely of friends. And in Jon L. Breen's William Allan Wilson, getting even has never felt so good. With contributions by Mary Higgins Clark, Jeremiah Healy, Peter Lovesey, P. J. Parrish, Daniel Stashower, and Angela Zeman, am ...
