Novel recounts horror in Maryland town

 The story of a town's dark secret and young boy's fear

The little town of Upper Marlboro, Md. in 1951 was a place of politely drawn racial lines.
A state senator, the toast of his constituents and a part-time champion of Negro youth, as the world called African Americans in those years, does the unthinkable when he lynches black children in his cellar.
Twenty years later, in 1971, a young boy moves into the dilapidated farm house that was once the senator's home. Billy Sanders sees the ghosts and living dead in the dark corners of the property and must unearth the truth to free himself from fear and the dead from their unfinished lives.
"Just Us: Horror in a Small Maryland Town", written by John L. Guerra, is now available on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, and other sites.
Published by New Atlantian Library and Absolutely Amazing E-Books, it is a scary read that takes the reader on a journey of fear, violence, and the reclamation of honor and love.

Air and Space Museum put aircraft in your face

The newer Air and Space Museum near Dulles Airport in Chantilly, Va., is outstanding in the way the aircraft are displayed.

The aircraft hang just feet away off the walkways that course above the hangar floor.
This U.S. Navy Corsair is in your face and banking for another strafing run on a Japanese aircraft carrier
I spent a few days in the enormous hangar that holds the Space Shuttle, SR-71 spy plane, F-14 Tomcat, as well as Nazi fighters from World War II and German, French, and British biplanes from World War I.

It's a great way to spend a rainy and misty day in the middle of the winter.
