On Blog Talk Radio this Sat., March 28, Lt. Michael Berish (Retired-M.P.D.) of the REAL Miami Vice! Author of “REFLECTIONS FROM THE PIT”

Lt. Michael Berish (Retired-M.P.D.) of the REAL Miami Vice! Author of “REFLECTIONS FROM THE PIT” This book pulls no punches. It shows you the dark side of police work: the good, the bad and the ugly (warts & all), both the humor and the tragedy. WEBSITE: BLOG SITE: Michael Berish graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.A. and earned his M.A. from Barry University. Mike worked for the City of Miami Police Department for twenty-two years; thirteen of which were spent as an undercover detective in the REAL Miami Vice where he worked everything from Narcotics & Vice, Prostitution, Gambling and ography, to Dignitary Protection of President Jose Napoleon Duarte (of El Salvador) and Pope John Paul II. Bad things happen in "the Pit," a notorious crime-infested ghetto in downtown Miami. "REFLECTIONS FROM THE PIT" is not just another collection of rehashed police stories with shootouts and car chases. These stories contain individual, quirky, off-center personalities and focuses on their basic character flaws, while dealing with social issues of the day: racism, sexism, prejudice, teenage prostitution, police brutality and its senseless violence, the murdering of transvestites, the stupidity of criminals, the cowardice of police officers, affirmative action, Cuban freedom fighters a.k.a. terrorists, hangings from police cruisers, drug-dealing cops and corruption, bungled police stings, the “don’t get involved” syndrome and the raping of the elderly.

The Federal Vampire & Zombie Agency

One of the more original web pages on vampires is The Federal Vampire & Zombie Agency (FVZA) at
This site created by Dr. Hugo Pecos would tempt you to believe vampires and zombies are truly with us.
But do scroll down to the bottom of the page for the disclaimer.
On the other hand, if you read my vampire novels, The Dancing Valkyrie and The Vampire Valkyrie, you just might think the FVZA is yet but one more trick real vampires use to protect them and hide their reality from the world, which prefers fantasy to reality.
