BISAC: Education / Behavioral Management
“A” appears to most people as a loving and excitable, creative and entertaining and intelligent 10-year old boy. He is a solid “A” student in mainstream 4th grade in a US Elementary School system. He is one of 25 students in his classroom. Like most of his peers, he acts like a 10 year old. According to the local Board of Education (BOE) “A” is designated as OHI, Other Health Impaired, an identification given that allows the BOE’s Special Education Program to provide him with Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and School Counseling as needed. “A” is currently clinically diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. The purpose of this study is to examine defining characteristics and symptoms of Asperger’s Syndrome according to published research and to compare/contrast research with the past 7 years recorded history of “A’s” growth and development.

Secretly, I wanted so much to believe. Secretly, I was so jealous that I was not a part of this wonderful community of believers. Never before had I experienced the comfort of belonging as I did with them. Even though I had not accepted “their” God I was still accepted by them, as one of them. This stirred a jealousy in me and created a sense of loss and separation from the group since I was not able to feel what they felt. I so wanted the Lord to enter my soul and take away the burden and the longing; moreover the emptiness I had lived with most of my life.
On the morning of Saturday, January 7, 2007 the Lord sent His Spirit into the depths of my soul. I was finally free. I was finally one with Him, my Savior.
We become Overcomers by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Rev 12:11)

“I Fired My Father” is written in the form of both an autobiography and a biography of an individual named Benjamin. The story of Benjamin is a compilation of a group of people from Chicago starting in the early 1960’s. Where facets of the story are based on actual events by various persons in the group, there is no one person this story is about.
The author, Steven Lee Douglas, himself a resident of Chicago during this period, used many of the places he knew as a boy to help make the story of Benjamin as real as possible for the reader’s enjoyment.
The story is about the turbulent relationship between a father and son over a period of 50 years.

Authored by Mr. Steven Lee Douglas
Ever wonder what happened in the lost decade between the end of Perestroika and the beginning of the Putin Era?
In 1991 the Soviet Union collapsed. Most expatriates left the country to reunite with families and try to plan for how they would work with the new Russian Federation. Just before this tumultuous event, Steven Lee Douglas came to Moscow on his first visit to the soon to be former Soviet Union. As he liked to tell his friends, he was welcomed by Gorbachev and kicked out by Putin 10 years later.
His Personal Memoirs as spoken in this book include his personal experiences living and working in the new Russian Federation during its first decade of existence. Never before events told about in great detail by someone who lived the experience.
Meetings with Soviet leaders, Mafia bosses, participation in the Secret Mafia Court system, Interrogation by the KGB at the Big House in Saint Petersburg are all a part of this exciting story. In the chapter on Murder at the Nevsky Palace a murder of a diplomat is exposed for the first time since it happened almost 20 years ago.
On top of all of his direct relations with the Godfather of the Petersburg area mafia and organized criminal groups, he was touted in the local press as the Frank Sinatra of St. Petersburg after joining the Ars Nova Jazz Quartet and performing at the leading Jazz Concert Halls throughout the country.
A must read for anyone interested in knowing what it was like to live the experience of Russia’s first decade, from Gorbachev to Yeltsin and finally Putin.
