Hello everyone,
Many of you have read the book review, I did on L W Smith’s Mountain of Death. Some have asked themselves, if such things really happen in our society. Yes, they do, and this is the reason why I am introducing just one of Smith’s blogging articles as a blog post. L W Smith is a retired Australian policeman, and his articles have opened the eyes of many who live in his country. If you have the time, please go to his blog. There are many articles which may help you understand people on the other side of life, and especially if you are working in a social capacity trying to help the unfortunate.

GAY DOESN’T ALWAYS MEAN HAPPY. Fortitude Valley is still Brisbane’s sex centre. Like many of the world’s flesh pots it caters for all tastes, straight and gay. The pubs and clubs attract a variety of clientele, whether it is by social standing, ethnicity, age or sexual preference. Whatever its source pubs mean one thing for a copper, trouble. If you were in uniform you could only enter a pub during the execution of your duty, it was different for Detectives. They would mingle there gathering information, talk with their informants or get on the booze. One well-known Gay pub was located in Brunswick Street, it was a meeting place for both sexes. The only real trouble happened in the car park, at the rear. The occasional fist fight or lover’s tiff rarely came to light. So I was surprised when I received a call to attend a disturbance in the main bar.

MYSTERY and ROMANCE .... what more could a woman want when she curls up with a good book? How about a beach, a sunset, a couple of horses, a crazy cat, an old dog, and of course ... TROUBLE.
