Short Stories – Flights of Fancy – By Geoff and Cruz Burrowes

 – By Geoff and Cruz Burrowes

Fancy Moore loved flying. Her father, Bill, was a big man, tall and with broad shoulders and a roughish twinkle in his eye  He was so big he almost had trouble fitting into his gleaming F35 fighter but he’d passed his love of soaring into the ‘wild blue yonder’ the white clouds, the deep blue sky to his daughter Fancy.

His old yellow Piper Cub plane, which normally slept in the old barn, at the edge of the farmer’s field behind their house, was meticulously serviced and Bill would take Fancy for flights as often as he could so she could savour the smell of old leather and oil and Avgas, could thrill to the roar of the old Continental engine as it pressed her back into her seat as her Dad accelerated down the worn strip of grass.      Continue reading

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

The 18-year-old European American male who killed 10 African Americans on May14 at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket surveyed the store located more than 200 miles from his hometown to be sure he could kill the largest number of African Americans. He posted a 180-page manifesto which cited the “replacement theory” – a belief that there is a plot to replace European Americans with people of other races — and 672 texts indicating that he decided since February to kill “replacers.”

How could such a young man, not yet out of his teens, son of two New York transit department engineers, be filled with such venom? Take your pick:            Continue reading
