Obnoxious Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness . . . and Such

Posted by Rick · August 27th, 2004 · No Comments

Many people apparently think I’m merely an unpaid writer of obnoxious blog articles — or is that an obnoxious unpaid writer of blog articles? — but there’s more to this fish than meets the eye.

I have actually been a paid writer; sometimes even of things “unobnoxious.” My writing ranges from professional technical writings, such as the chapter I wrote for Glen Bergen’s book (Migrating NT4 to Windows 2000 Exam Prep), to legal briefs written and used for actual court cases to sometimes interesting fiction (even poetry!) to these obnoxious blog entries for which I am, so far, unpaid. Someone once noted that my work runs from the sesquipedalian and obtuse to the abecedarian and perspicacious. (Well, okay, they might not have used exactly those words.)

Sadly, some of my work has been lost, such as my numerous childhood stories of Snoopy and the Red Baron; my article “Creative Marketing Tactics for MT Service Owners” which appeared in Vol. II, No. VIII of MT Monthly, the professional medical transcriptionists’ journal in 1994; and my “Democritus & the Moderns: A Comparative Study in Perception,” delivered before a Classical Studies Annual Forum at California State University, Fresno, in 1991.

In order to showcase the range of my work and provide writing samples to those who might thereafter offer me a law clerk position, I’ve created a new page on this site:

Feel free to check out the page if you want to see “another side” of the guy who runs Unspun™ and, as usual, comments are welcome and invited from anyone except Nick. (Just kidding, Nick!)

And don’t forget to check back tomorrow to read about Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 137 (1 Cranch) (1803) and the problem of “activist judges”!
