For some reason, my publisher cut the best chapters from The User’s Guide to the Human Mind. What happened to my haggis recipes and the chapter on Bigfoot?
Actually, this essay didn’t get cut; it’s an afterthought. Think of it as a bonus chapter to an odd little book that can use all the help it can get. Continue reading “Don’t Believe Everything Your Mind Says”

Right now, a Parker man is charged with two counts of first degree murder, our own Broncos quarterback has been accused of causing injury and destruction of property, and last March a man was shot in the neck during an alleged road-rage incident.
