Allow me to welcome you this grotesque digital experiment, the Mattress Fire. I am, as noted in the header, your humble narrator. The parameters of this exercise are virtually non-existent. You will find brief postings on History, fiction writing, poor man's journalism, and various other pulpy chunks of commentary. The views presented are--quite obviously--wholly my own and do not reflect on any institution(s) I may be affiliated with. Welcome, once again, to the Mattress Fire.
