    Wow!

    An amazingly talented and thought provoking author. Enjoyable but very intellectually stimulating. He definitely has a point to say. It will be interesting to see what he puts out next. I'll be first in line to buy!

    Thumbs Up(for Dunbar) and a Middle Finger Too(at Public Education)

    This is someone who despises the current educational system like so many do and considers public education "Dumb Down". The author hits the nail on the head when he describes the "University of Dumb Down". What a pack of morons we have in the classroom!

    This is what being uneducated, or educated only in one particular subject looks like.

    thumbs down

    Intentional Typos- Hilarious!

    At first I was dismayed to find about 6-8 typos, but then learned from the author's website that they were left intentionally by the author which was a first. (They did not hurt the substance of the book.) You cannot say that isn't original! I just about died laughing at the Arsonist Firefly. The satire The Great Hornswoggle is pretty funny too and I see alot of perspectives I never thought of before. This is a very good and funny book. From the author's website-I chose to leave several typos in my book for a reason. In life I have learned that not all things that look good are good and not all things that look bad are bad. Inside a mentally retarded man I went to school with I found a heart of gold and he really doesn't look like gold from the outside, but that's exactly what he is on the inside. There's alot of "typo" people who get passed over because of looks and no one gets to see their substance. That is the purpose of an intentional typo.

    I also wanted to let you know that I have an ongoing gripe with the educational system and INTENTIONALLY left several typos. I know where they are. It's my snub to the school system because they have form, but no substance. I chose substance, and alot of form, but people have to choose substance over form or we'll all start drinking anti-freeze because it looks and tastes good.

    Liars Corner Road

    I have read most of the book. It is excellent. It is a new perspective that is refreshing. There are so many cool short stories and FUNNY stories. I love David's sense of humor. The book also contains sweet and gentle poetry. He is an excellent writer! You will want to read and read and read!

    A Smorgasbord of Thought!

    Liars Corner Road is a collection of poetry, prose, as well as short story satire lampooning the current political conditions and is certain to offend-which is exactly what we need! The author takes an iconclast position mocking political correctness, which is neither correct nor good for our society. It's nice to see someone stand up for common sense in such a humorous manner.
    Recommended readings-The Dissection of the Albino Bookworm, The Great Hornswoggle, The Watchtower Letters, Yes, We Have No Religion, We Have No Religion Today, On Feminism, Orkin Angel Dust, The Arsonist Firefly, The Anarchist At The Political Plantation Riddle, Do Unto Others:A Baby Seal Hunter Goes To Hell, The Village People, etc.
    Some wicked humor. The run-on's will leave you with a headache.
    A real smorgasbord of thought!
