Follow David as he does detective work in order to catch the killer, or killers, and solve the rash of murders. Keep following David as he runs from the drug cartels that have started their own country and as he escapes monumentally mad Martians. David's political views and psychological problems are often put on display and the results are rather amusing. It's a hilarious and informative look at life in a dull town in a wealthy valley that is beset by murders . . . or is it? Since this book doesn't really fall into an established genre, the author came up with a new one. VD is a political sarcastic comedy, and so falls into the new "Polisarcasmedy" genre. It could become a huge, popular genre if our politicians don't improve....

What is Tourette syndrome (TS)? To people who do not have it, it is probably not what they think. To fully understand this baffling disorder you must be afflicted with it. There is no other way. Even then, there are no guarantees. The everyday feelings and urges to perform the tics that are symptoms of TS are unlike any that a person without TS could imagine. There are as many cases of TS as there are people who have it. No two cases are exactly alike. This book was put together in
order to raise awareness for TS. After reading the stories you will not totally understand TS. That is a given. It is my hope that the readers will understand it just a little bit better. Even if just one person learns more
about TS or gains a greater understanding of TS as a result of reading this book, it will be well worth the time and effort it took to write it. Tourette syndrome is an often, misunderstood neurological disorder.  The main symptoms are what are called “tics”. A tic is defined as an involuntary, sudden, rapid, repetitive, unbalanced, motor movement or vocalization. The tics occur many times a day, nearly every day.  The most common motor tics are rapid eye blinking, shoulder shrugging,
squinting, and facial grimacing. Some of the less common tics include grinding teeth, neck jerking, flailing arms, biting nails, and toe curling.The most common vocal tics are throat clearing, sniffing, grunting, coughing, and stuttering or stammering.
There are a few important facts about TS that are important know.  Up to one in 100 schoolboys have some form of TS. Three to four males have it for every female. The diagnosis is often missed. TS symptoms usually decrease with age, but not always. TS is an inherited disorder.  Learning disorders, panic attacks, school phobias, speech problems, and sleeping problems are common too.  People with TS usually also have either ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), or OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). Many people with Tourette's have both of these accompanying disorders.
When most people think of TS they think of the disorder where people with it swear uncontrollably and profusely. This symptom of TS (coprolalia) is the easiest symptom to recognize, but it is also the rarest.  It is important to remember that coprolalia is present in less than twenty
percent of TS patients.  Most people with TS, when describing a tic, say that they feel a sudden tension building up that must be relieved by performing the tic.
Tics are suppressible for varying lengths of time. The longer the tics are suppressed the more the tension builds up and the more there is a need to release them.
Another major characteristic of TS is a waxing and waning of the symptoms. This includes both a change from one tic to another, to the complete disappearance of symptoms for varying periods of time.  The tics usually begin during the ages of five through nine, but symptoms can start at any time. There have even been some cases where they started late into adulthood.
While motor and vocal tics are the main symptoms used to make a diagnosis, and they are what are most identified with TS, there are many other problems that can be associated with it, the main of which are behavior related.  The people with TS who suffer from these behaviors are often angry, argumentative, and confrontational. Everything has to be their way or
is someone else's fault. One minute they'll be fine and the next minute they'll be in a rage. They tease their siblings relentlessly. They have a short temper, smart mouth, talk back, throw temper tantrums over nothing, and won't take “no” for an answer. Many of them lie and steal too. Of course, it is difficult to tell if a person's TS is causing these behaviors or something else is, but many studies of TS patients have shown that these behaviors are much more common in them than in people without it.  I am proud to present my autobiography about my life with Tourette syndrome....

Don't I feel like a loser when I learn you're through with me.
It was news to everyone, especially to me.
Don't I feel pathetic, like there's something wrong with me.
She is far more beautiful than I could ever be.
I stand here null and solemn, though it must be written on my face,
that I've found before the world what you couldn't say to my face.
You blow right on by me with your new love, hand in hand.
So smug, haughty, and thoughtless.  You are not much of a man.
Filled with anger, through and through, I feel like I could drown.
I lift my glass and drink fast to chase the feeling down.
I close my eyes.  I still see your face.  Somehow I should have known.
You kill me inside with a passing glance, and now my heart grows cold.
So much time spent in a one sided love was wasted all on you.
Don't I feel like a loser for ever caring about you.
