{ torque fest ‘13 } get that pile of bolts outta here!Hot Rod & MotorcycleQualificationsVintage Torque Fest is a unique kind ofcar show and because it is so differentfrom other shows entry requirements andqualifications have created some confusion.Before we get into the finer points ofthe show’s focus, potential exhibitors andguests should understand that Torque Festorganizers welcome everyone to come out,show off your ride and learn a little bit moreabout the particular aesthetic and cultureVintage Torque Fest celebrates.So what is this Vintage Torque Fest about?And does your classic car qualify for entryinto the “official” show? Because the term“hot rod” can be interpreted pretty broadly,it should be noted that Vintage Torque Festis limited to pre-1965 vintage-style hot rods,pre-1975 motorcycles, and one-of-a-kindcustoms. Let’s unpack the concept a bit.Vintage Torque Fest celebrates the hot rodculture that sprang up after World War II,when young soldiers returned and beganusing the technical skills they learned in themilitary to customize stock vehicles for funand for racing. They chopped and modifiedthem in all sorts of ways, mostly to makethem lighter and more powerful. When theFord Mustang was introduced in 1965, itbegan the era of the muscle car, essentiallytaking the hot rod’s game plan into thefactory. While muscle cars are cool, TorqueFest (and other similar vintage hot rodshows) celebrate the original do-it-yourselfaesthetic of that pre-’65 era.As such, some of the cars at Vintage TorqueFest might look a bit rough to those used toseeing showroom-perfect restorations atother car shows. You will see some beautifullydetailed customs, but you will also seehot rods with simple, flat paint jobs, visiblewelds, unfinished surfaces, and even rustthat acknowledges the history of the vehicle.Stock parts are not considered as importantas period-appropriate substitutions ormodifications. All of them reflect the personalitiesof the guys that saved them fromthe salvage yard and keep them running.What you won’t see at Vintage Torque Festare “street rods” or “art cars.” Street rodsembrace later materials and technologicaldevelopments that aren’t authentic to theoriginal hot rod style like billet (machinedaluminum wheels and parts), airbrushedmural graphics, and digital gauges. Likewise,cars that feature more modern equipmentlike independent front suspensionsand electronic fuel injection generally donot fit the style, especially on fenderless oropen engine cars. Kit cars and cars accessorizedthrough the addition of catalogparts are not consistent with the vintage hotrod practice of scrounging scrap yards andswap meets for period parts and materials.Art cars are a bit more difficult to define butcan include cars painted or accessorizedaround a theme (skeleton, pumpkin, rat,etc.). If an accessory was added for shockvalue or humor, the vehicle might be consideredan art car.The show will not accept any cars producedafter 1964, unless it’s a model thatmaintained a pre-’65 body style into a latermodel year. Vintage Torque Fest will accept1949 stock original or restored classics.Some might be surprised that Torque Festis not all that interested in newer stock classiccars or classics that have been restoredusing original parts. Not that vintage hotrod enthusiasts don’t have a great appreciationfor anyone who has labored to preserveor restore an original antique vehicle,but like the later street rods or muscle cars,it’s just not the style of this particular show.Keep in mind, that the limited focus of thisshow is what brings hot rod clubs fromaround the country to Vintage Torque Fest.In a similar vein, the “Motor Psycho” RoundUp is a motorcycle show of vintage pre-1975custom motorcycles, bobbers and choppers.The show is open to vintage bikesfrom the likes of Norton, Triumph, HarleyDavidson, Indian, BSA, and even Japanesemademotorcycles that fit with the show’sold-school/traditional aesthetic. Pre-1975café racers and pre-1965 stock motorcyclesare welcome. Art bikes, stock bikes, twin camHarleys, and West Coast Choppers or OCCstylecustoms are not in the vibe of the show.While newer stock and restored cars, streetrods, muscle cars, sports cars and otherperformance vehicles will not be acceptedinto the “official” Vintage Torque Fest show,they are welcome at the event and will beable to park in the “Classic and Chrome” orVIP parking areas, in effect an extension ofthe main show. Likewise, OCC-style custombikes, touring bikes and post-’75 Harleysare welcome at Torque Fest and will have aspecial parking area. To delve deeper intothe finer points of qualification, a full list ofentry requirements can be found online atwww.vintagetorquefest.com.It wasn’t until after we did our cover shoot thatwe found out the super cool bike we used in theshoot didn’t quite fit the technical requitementsof Torquefest. But owner/builder Justin Strandfrom Bishop’s Custom Cycles in Boscobel, WIwas real nice guy and the story of buildingthe bike so his brother Mike could again ridea motorcycle was a pretty awesome. Jason isa metal fabricator and Mike is the artist whopaints tanks and does custom leather work. It’s agreat team turing out sweet rides! Thanks guys.www.Dubuque365.com365ink Magazine | issue #185 { april 25 - may 8, 2013 } 13


{ torque fest ‘13 }i’ll race ya for pinks!...continued from page 12It’s the unique niche that brings vintage hot rodenthusiasts in from around the country, most drivingtheir cars the entire distance. These are notshowroom cars that sit parked in a garage. In fact,over 500 cars are pre-registered this year, crushinglast year’s pre-registration total of about 100 cars.“This year we’ve got registrations from Pittsburgh,Pennsylvania, Canada, Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas,those guys from Florida are driving up again, NorthCarolina,” Wells lists off the top of his head. “Hot RodEd is coming from New York again. It’s a nationalshow that’s coming to town. A lot of guys don’t realizethat but in this realm this show is a big deal. Sowe hope that the city of Dubuque will get behind itand appreciate that these guys that are coming intotown with their old cars and their hot rods and theircustom cars and their vintage motorcycles.”Those arriving early can join local hot rod andclassic car owners in the Thursday night Pre-PartyParade. Organized in partnership with Gary Dusterof Graffiti Nights, the weekly Thursday eveninggathering of classic cars in East Dubuque, theparade will be staged in the McGraw-Hill parkinglot at the Port of Dubuque before crossing the 3rdStreet Bridge into Dubuque’s downtown.“The parade is open to the public so if people wantto come downtown and just watch all the cars goby, it will be a way for them to see the cars in motionactually driving by and then we’ll go back down toMcGraw-Hill for a special Graffiti Nights just likethey host in East Dubuque,” Wells explained. “Thisis open to all classic cars, new American muscle …if you’ve got a cool motorcycle, bring it out andyou can be part of the parade. It’s not like our showwhere you have to meet certain qualifications toget in. Everybody should just come on down andbe part of the parade. It’s free and we’re all justgetting together and having a good time. It’s a funway to kick off the weekend.”Torque Fest weekend itself gets started Friday afternoonwith the gates opening to the public at noon.The festival will host a second rolling exhibition onFriday afternoon at 3 p.m., the Backroads CountryCruise, which will wind through Dubuque Countybackroads from the Fairgrounds to the Dyersville’sField of Dreams, Toy Museum, and the Country Junctionrestaurant before returning to the Fairgroundsfor a pin up fashion show, and the beginning of livemusic on three stages and racing on the dirt track.“Basically, when we get back it’s non-stop the rest ofthe night,” said Wells. “We’ve got multiple bands onmultiple stages. The last band that night starts at 11so it’s definitely a lot of bang for your buck.”...continued on page 30Show and Track Events ScheduleWith the move to Dubuque Vintage Torque Fest expands to celebrate afull weekend of hot rod culture beginning Thursday, May 2 and continuingthrough Sunday, May 5. There is a whole lot to see and do so check outthe schedule and plan your itinerary accordingly. It should be noted thatall times are approximate.

Contestantstry to recreate the look of vintage pin ups of the classicera – the kind of thing you might see in a GI’s locker ora calendar in a ‘50s garage. Sexy? Sure, but demureas well. Successful contestants should be dressed inperiod-correct style clothing. Anything too modern ortoo revealing will not be allowed. Organizers remindus that the stag films of the late ‘50s were the equivalentof today’s Victoria’s Secret commercial, and that isaltogether too much for the Pin Up Contest. After all,they claim they are trying “to class up the joint withsome pretty women.”For this year’s Pin Up Contest, over 30 contestantssigned up in advance with the top 15 being chosenby votes cast by “likes” on the Vintage Torque FestFacebook page to advance to Round 2.

{ 365 dining: little tokyo } sake to me!insure most of the ingredients in their kitchen are the sameones used in those Tokyo restaurants.Little Tokyoby Rich BelmontLittle Tokyo is appropriately named all right. It is located inGalena, IL at the corner of Main and Franklin Streets. Whenyou dine there it is as if you are in a very professional andexpensive restaurant in Tokyo, Japan’s largest city. But ofcourse without the hassle and the great expense!We are so fortunate to have a place providing us with authenticJapanese cuisine dedicated to waking up our Midwest tastebuds. So I’m perplexed when I speak with local citizens whotell me they will not go there because they don’t like Sushi orare afraid to taste raw seafood. Apparently, many people don’tunderstand what Little Tokyo is so perhaps an explanation is inorder. Yes, it is a Sushi Bar but it is also a Japanese Restaurant.Besides Sushi and Sashimi there are many beef and chickendishes on the menu. You can choose Tempura, Teriyaki andHibachi Style too, but wait… I’m getting ahead of myself.Little Tokyo was started over 3years ago by Michael Zhu (left)and his wife Amy Chen. Theyboth grew up in mainlandChina, Michael in ShanggiuPrefecture and Amy in Fujian.They did not know each otherwhen they immigrated toNew York City. As fate wouldhave it they soon foundjobs working at Umi Sushi &Hibachi Japanese Restaurantin Toms River, New Jersey.Amy worked in all facets of the restaurant’s operations whileMichael trained under Yoshi, a renowned Master Sushi Chef.After cupid shot his arrow Michael and Amy got married andproceeded to start a family. They decided to get away from thecrowded city and suburban life and had friends in and aroundDubuque and Galena. The rest, as they say, is history.Operating a Sushi Bar and Japanese Restaurant in the Midwestis challenging. Michael and Amy drive to Chicago once ortwice a week to buy Sushi Grade seafood from a Japanesewholesaler. They also work with several other suppliers toThe result is a bill of fare featuring all sorts of genuineJapanese cuisine. The menu is extensive, eleven pages tobe exact. There are sections for Appetizers from the Kitchen,Appetizers from the Sushi Bar, Soup, Salad, Sushi and Sashimi,Dinners from the Kitchen, Hibachi Dinners, Bento Box Dinners,and Desserts just to name a few.There are 18 appetizers from the kitchen and six Sushi andSashimi rolls from the Sushi bar. Each one is excellent in its ownright. For example Gyoza (above, left) is pan fried dumplingswith a special sauce. Harumaki are Japanese spring rolls stuffedwith bok choy and carrots. There is Shrimp Tempura (above,right) and Yaki Tori Chicken on skewers with teriyaki sauce.Little Tokyo300 N. Main Street, Galena, IL 61036 ,815-777-8883HOURS: Sun – Mon: 11 am – 9:00 pm, Tues: Closed,Wed – Thu: 11 am – 9 pm, Fri – Sat: 11 am – 9:30 pmDINING STYLE: Casual NOISE LEVEL: ConversationalRECOMMENDATIONS: Gyoza, Beef Tataki, SashimiAppetizer, Kani Salad, Chicken Teriyaki, SweetheartRoll, Tiger Roll, Romeo & Juliet Roll, Little TokyoTrio, Bento Box, Dynamite Roll, Ice Cream Tempura,Cheese Cake Tempura, Mochi Ice CreamLIQUOR SERVICE: Full Bar; Sake BombPRICES: Appetizers: $3.95 - $10.95Entrées: $12.95 to $30.00, Sushi: $3.75 to $17.95;PAY OPTIONS: Cash, Debit, All Credit. No checksRESERVATIONS: YesACCESSIBILITY: Front door and RestroomsKIDS POLICY: Appetizers, BoosterTAKE OUT: Yes DELIVERY: No CATERING: YesPARKING: On streetThen there is the exquisite Sashimi appetizer with 7 pieces ofassorted raw fish each one with its own exciting flavor. Myfavorite starter is the Beef Tataki: scorched thinly sliced beefbathing in an enticing Ponzu Sauce (at rigth). Ponzu is apopular marinade and dipping sauce. It is basically soy saucewith the addition of dried fish flakes to add richer flavor, mirin, alow alcohol rice wine for a touch of sweetness.For those of you who are not seafood fans there are wonderfuldinners like Chicken Teriyaki (above) with lightly batteredsweet potato. There is also, Black Angus Choice Grade FiletMignon Hibachi dinner, Chicken, Shrimp or VegetableTempura dinners or Chicken Katsu. This last one is a chickencutlet with Tonkatsu which is a honey teriyaki sauce.Now I see some of you may be wondering what these termslike Hibachi and Teppanyaki mean. Hibachi is actually aheating device containing charcoal but in the US it becameto be thought of as an iron hot plate. On the other hand,Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cooking using an iron griddleto grill, broil or pan fry. In the United States the words Hibachiand Teppanyaki have become synonymous. All of the usualfoods cooked on Teppanyaki grills are available at Little Tokyoincluding beef, shrimp, scallops, lobster, chicken and assortedvegetables. Hibachi Steakhouses cook on Teppanyaki grillsso in effect Little Tokyo is a Japanese Steakhouse only yourdinners are cooked in the kitchen instead of at your table.My favorite Hibachi dinner is the Little Tokyo Trio for Two (above).A huge plate of fried rice, chunks of shrimp, filet mignon andchicken plus vegetables is expertly stir fried in soybean oil and26 { april 25 - may 8, 2013 } 365ink Magazine | issue #185www.Dubuque365.com


{ 365 dining: little tokyo }sushi is way too addicting!brought to the table for two people to enjoy together.Tempura is simply food that has been battered and deep fried.Michael prepares his own Tempura batter. He mixes it in smallbatches making sure it is neither too thin nor too thick andkept very cold by keeping it immersed in a cold water bath.Teriyaki is a Japanese cooking technique where foods arebroiled or grilled while being basted in a marinade. Here too,Michael prepares his own Teriyaki sauce in the traditional waymixing soy sauce, mirin, honey and sugar.Michael is the Sushi Chef (Itamae) and he is skilled andsupremely talented as well. Fresh, high quality fish does notmake good Sushi unless it is in the hands of a professional artist.Here are a few things you might not know about Sushi (sueshee).First of all, it is not unusual for Sushi Bars to be staffedby Chinese. The original type of Sushi was first made inSoutheast Asia along the Mekong Delta and then spread toChina way before it was first introduced in Japan. The wordSushi literally means “sour tasting” and refers to the speciallyprepared vinegared rice. Sushi is actually sticky rice with smallbite-sized pieces of fish or vegetables pressed into it. The riceis a very important ingredient which is why Itamae Michaelcooks the short grain rice very carefully while adding vinegarand his own blend of seasonings.Sushi is always a combination of rice with a topping or fillingof fish, seafood, vegetables or even egg. Fish in Sushi can beeither raw or cooked (below).Sashimi (sah-shee-mee) is the art of serving raw, very freshseafood cut into thin slices that are then dipped into a mixtureof soy sauce and wasabi (Japanese Green Horseradish).Sashimi is not served with rice.Little Tokyo has done an excellent job of separating the menuinto sections. You can easily identify which items are Sashimiand Sushi and which ones are raw or cooked.The making of sushi and sashimi is a true art form. The Sushichef (Itamae) is responsible for the freshness of the seafood,the exquisite slicing and the combinations of fish in eachroll. There are subtle pairings of different cuts of seafoodthat provide for tantalizing flavors and appealing colors aswell. This is what separates run of the mill sushi bars fromgreat ones. Itamae Michael and Amy have one of the trulyexceptional ones. In their restaurant there are over 60 rolls tochoose from and every one is a masterpiece.For example, the Sweetheart Roll is a combination of shrimptempura, spicy tuna, avocado, snow crab, fish egg, tempuracrunch wrapped in soybean paper with the chef’s special sauce.Then there is the Tiger Roll made with tuna, salmon, eel, crunchymasago, and scallion served with eel and avocado sauce.The Galena Narudo Roll is delicious! It contains tuna, salmon,yellowtail, red snapper, white tuna, flying fish roe wrappedwith cucumber. The Fire Dragon has snow crab, cucumberand avocado inside and cooked eel on the outside.On a recent visit our waitress, Zoe Tang, who is from Shanghai,helped us pick our exciting and scrumptious assortment ofSushi. The 365ink tasting crew and I tried many differentseafood items I would not have tried on my own. Not only didI like all of them but I found many to be delightful. Like, forexample, Kristina’s Romeo and Juliet Roll: a tantalizing lobstertail tempura inside and snow crab on top!Ordering a Bento Box (bottom of previous column) is agood idea when you want to try a few different thingswith a tantalizing array of flavors. A Bento is a tray withindividual compartments for separating an assortment ofdelicacies. They are available for lunch or dinner. I recentlyhad an excellent lunch with a Bento containing Teriyakiwhite meat chicken, fried rice, dumplings, California roll,broccoli, baby corn and orange slices.Don’t forget the desserts! The Cheese Cake Tempura isso creamy and the Mochi Ice Cream Balls are a real treat.Mochi is pounded sticky rice with an ice cream filling. TheIce Cream Tempura is always a good choice too. The icecream in both of these desserts is red bean. In Japan apaste is prepared from the red azuki bean and is as popularthere as chocolate is here.Oh, and one more rule: have agreat time! Start your eveningwith a beer or sake bomb andthen order some hot sake togo with your Teppanyaki or trycold filtered sake with Sushi orsip some green tea (agari).When drinking sake say“Kanpai” (con-pie) whichmeans “empty your glass” and gulp it down. When youare leaving Little Tokyo say thank you to your Itamae andserver by saying Domo Arigato (doe-mow ary-ga-to) orthank you for the meal Gochisosama Deshita (go-chee-sosamadeshee-ta)!www.Dubuque365.com365ink Magazine | issue #185 { april 25 - may 8, 2013 } 27

It’s a way for people to just come outand have a good time.”In addition to being aunique hot rod and motorcycleshow and overall celebrationof hot rod culture,Vintage Torque Fest is afundraiser for the HelpingHannah’s Heart Foundation,a 501 (c)(3) non-profitcharitable organizationcreated to help families ofchildren with congenitalheart defects. Whilethat has always been the case, in pastyears our Torque Fest coverage in365ink focused more on the uniqueevent itself with the charitable fundraisingaspect being almost a footnote.Having firmly established the event inEastern Iowa (and drawing participantsnationwide) Wells wants to emphasizethe underlying purpose of the show.It’s something that he and his wife Kimunderstand all too well as the foundationis named for their daughter Hannahwho is a very brave little girl who liveswith a congenital heart defect.“I think over time we’ve had more and morepeople that understand what the show isabout now; we don’t have to explain it asmuch. They’ve been there in the past orthey’ve had friends that have come in thepast and so everybody’s able to tell peoplein their own way what the show is all about,”he said. “Now, it’s a message of gettingout to everyone, ‘Hey, we’re trying to raisemoney for these families that have kids withcongenital heart defects. That’s the ultimategoal with this whole thing is to helppeople who have a need and fill that needwith some change in their pocket.”“What we’re trying to do in our first yearhere (in Dubuque) is we’re basically going toadopt a family each year,” Wells continues.“This year, we have a familyfrom the South Chicago/ Joliet area, the Essl family.I’ve known them for years.They followed our storywhen we went througheverything with our child,and then they had a boy,Race, that was born withhypoplastic left heart syndrome(HLHS), which isexactly what we were dealingwith. It’s basically wherethe left chamber of the heart doesn’t functionproperly and if uncorrected, the kid willdie. The first 18 months of Race’s life wasspent in the hospital and so we have to helpthem out. They’re a family that has been inthe car scene forever and they helped uswhen we were going through a hard timewith our child and now it’s time to give backto them and help them out.”Wells explains that it’s not just the cost oftreatment that adds up for a family but alsothe associated costs of travel, hotels, lostwork, and a range of other expenses thatadd to the financial burden of keeping achild healthy. “He’s three-years-old now,”Wells continues. “They have over a milliondollars in bills, so if we can throw a little bitof money in their pocket, just to get someguy off their back for a month, then that’sgreat. It’s a small drop in the bucket but it’ssomething that will make a difference intheir lives, hopefully.”Wells explains that proceeds from the gateadmissions go toward Helping Hannah’sHeart Foundation, so simply by attendingTorque Fest people are contributing.With significant financial challenges oftheir own, he urges people to attend Saturday’sart auction, the proceeds of whichhelp to defray their own mounting healthcarecosts. “We do an art auction each yearand that benefits our medical trust,” Wellsexplained. “We’ve got tons of bills also withour daughter and now our second daughterwas diagnosed with a heart issue as well, sonow we have two kids that we are going tohave to monitor. The proceeds of the artauction go to our medical trust, so we reallyneed people to come out and bid on thatstuff to help us with all our medical bills.”At 4:30 on Saturday afternoon Wells will bepresenting the first check to the Essl familyto help with the expenses of caring fortheir son Race. “Hopefully, that’s what thisshow turns into,” he said. “Not only is it acool gathering, but we are going to be ableto help families directly. That’s what this isall about. So I hope this message can getout there more and more because in thepast it’s always been about having a goodtime, seeing the cars, seeing the racingand now that we’ve established the event,let’s shift and make this more of a focus onhelping people out.”For more information, including full rules,schedules, band descriptions, links, and contactinfo, visit www.vintagetorquefest.com.For more information about the HelpingHannah’s Heart Foundation, visitwww.helpinghannahsheart.org.30 { april 25 - may 8, 2013 } 365ink Magazine | issue #185www.Dubuque365.com

Prune toshape leafy shrubs that bloom after June1st. If you prune early bloomers, like lilacsand forsythia, you likely won’t haveblooms this year. Rake out leaves and debristhat may have collected in beds where theycan’t properly compost naturally.Apply Preen or corn gluten as a preemergentherbicide throughout planting beds to preventunwanted weed seedlings from growing.Remove any suckers at base of trees andlarge shrubs as well as any crossing/rubbingbranches.PlantingCold weather veggies can begin to be plantedin the veggie garden now.

One-fifth of a medium avocadoor three thin slices contains 50 caloriesand 2 grams fiber. Of the fat in avocados, 75%is unsaturated (monounsaturated & polyunsaturatedfat) – the healthy fat that helpswith satiety (the feeling of fullness) and isalso good for heart-health.Did you know there is a new way to cut andpeel avocados? Simply cut the avocado inquarters; nick and peel the skin from the avocadoto get the nutrient-rich, dark green fruitunder the peel. This dark green layer containsthe greatest concentration of carotenoids.The best way to test for ripeness is to gentlysqueeze the avocado in the palm of yourhand. Avocados are ready to eat when theywill yield to gentle pressure. To speed theripening of avocados, they can be stored ina brown paper sack at room temperature fortwo to five days. Adding a banana or apple tothe sack will help ripen avocados even faster,as these fruits give off ethylene gas whichquickens the ripening process.Roasted Garlic Guacamole withHelp-Yourself GarnishesServes 16 (1/4 cup each)Source: Adapted from Fiesta at Rick’s by RickBayless; W.W.

{ bob’s book reviews / mattitude } it’s off to work we go....Don’t Drop This OneBy Bob GelmsMichael Connelly is so good at what hedoes that it is nothing short of a splendidreading experience. Take, for example,The Drop, out about 18 months ago. HarryBosch is back and he is juggling two casesat the same time just like a real cop. One isa cold case and the other a hot one.Two detectives in the open unsolved unitsend out a DNA requeston some evidence in anopen case. A woman wasraped and murdered andthe body dumped by theocean. They get a hit. TheDNA comes back to a suspect,who, unfortunatelyfor them was only 8 yearsold at the time of thecrime 22 years previously.The 8year olds bloodwas found on the victim.The Lieutenant in chargethinks the detectivesmight have mixed casesup or the lab screwedup in a big way. Either way there couldbe dire consequences for the departmentand for other cases so the Lieutenant callsin her best guy to investigate who messedup, that would be Harry Bosch. Turns outnobody bungled the investigation andthat leads Harry into a very, very darkplace. It is there he finds a new love interest,child molesters, sexual predator victimsand a killer the like of which Harry hasnever seen. You will see very little of thisthis case coming at you. Mr. Connelly is soskilled at what he does that the only onewho will figure this out is Harry Bosch andnot you. It is GREAT fun.The hot case Harry is coping with at thesame time involves the son of Harry’s biggestnemesis, former police chief and currentpolitical heavy weight CouncilmanIrvin Irving. It seems former cop, lawyerand Councilman Irving’s son, George, hascommitted suicide by jumping from theseventh floor balcony of the Chateau Marmont.The same place John Belushi met hisdemise. The Councilman hates Bosch butasks the Chief of Police to put him on thecase, thinking that Bosch will get to thetruth about his son no matter what. Hewill, in a very big way.It sure looks like a suicide but Boschreads the evidence and comes up withsomething completely different, somethingvery sinister involving murder,corruption of the police and the citycouncil, and revenge.This story line is the major case in TheDrop. The name of the book takes onmany meanings as the book progressesthe main one of which involves Georgebeing rendered unconscious and then“dropped” off the balcony. It is also areference to when Bosch’s contract withthe police departmentwill be droppedleaving him, effectively,retired.Michael Connelly is asgood as it get whenwriting and readingdetective fiction. Heuncovers a plot likehe was peeling anonion. You, as thereader, can see thewhole thing but eachlayer peeled bringsfresh informationto roll around yoursenses. With most writers of this type offiction I am reasonably good at seeinghow clues hang together and predictingthe end; not at all with Michael Connelly.That’s why I like his books so much andwhy they are so much fun to read. I alsolearn a lot about how the police work. Itis endlessly fascinating for me. Mr. Connellyspeaks with authority as he usedto be a staff reporter in LA on the cop/homicide beat. He knows whereof hespeaks.What about Harry Bosch himself. It is asif Connelly took Sherlock Holmes andran him through Dashiell Hammett andthen updated him to the present withoutthe sidekick. It you read Bosch youwill know he has partners that neverseem to work out. They get killed, shot,retire or just plain get sick and tiredof putting up with Bosch’s eccentricbehavior and find another partner. LikeHolmes Bosch is, essentially, a loner witha mind a sharp as broken glass whichsometimes works against him as in theGeorge Irving case as it does for him likein the cold case in this book.Drop in you won’t be disappointed.32 { april 25 - may 8, 2013 } 365ink Magazine | issue #185Negativity Killsby matt boothNegativity kills – literally. Negativethinking weakens the immune systemand contributes to disease and to anincrease in mortality. Negativity is likea tornado, when one person says ordoes something negative, it can destroyeveryone in its path. When somethingbad happens, people often expect morebad things to happen. Even in small doses,negativity contributes to illness andultimately to death. This is why itis important for you to displaythrough your attitudes andactions the ability to fight offand overcome negativity.It is OK to have one of thosedays, you know, when you feelthat the whole world is againstyou. It often starts with gloomyweather, a bad argument, afeeling of being overwhelmedand underappreciated(please add in your ownversion of one of thosedays here). The differencebetween healthy levels of negativity andharmful levels of negativity is the length oftime in which you stay stuck in the nastyplace. When you have one of those days,do you pull yourself out quickly or do youwallow in the negative crap for monthson end? Having one of those days is fine.Mattitude Improvement TipTurn Off The Bad NewsHaving five years in a row of one of thosedays is catastrophic.Somehow, we seem to excuse someonewho is negative in our culture by givingthem the title of being “realistic”. If you thinkyou’re being “realistic” and not negative,you’re kidding yourself. When you areconsistently “realistic”, you are killing things.It kills relationships with friends, coworkers,bosses, clients, and most importantly, itkills relationships at home. It kills whenyou speak negatively, act negatively,and see the worst in people. It killswhen you argue and refuse andfirst see why things won’t workand why you shouldn’t even try.Your negative attitude kills yourcreativity and ability to dream.Negativity kills the way you seeyourself, the way you see yourjob, and the people around you.If there is enough negativity, you’lleven kill hope.No one is sheltered fromthe negative tornadoand I’m not suggestingthat you ignore all of the badstuff in the world, just don’t wallow in it fordays, months or years. There is hope andyou are not doomed for a life of negativity.Even though negative people, situationsand failures are unavoidable, you can avoidtheir destructive power by defending youown positive attitude.It has been a long couple of weeks and there has been some bad stuff in the news. Ifyou’re feeling down or depressed, turn off the bad news. I’m not saying ignore the news,I’m saying turn it off. If you’ve been glued to the TV or internet for hours in a row hangingon every detail of the tragedy in Boston, there is no wonder you don’t feel good. Thereare so many other things you could be doing. Why not do something that benefits yourhealth and enhances your life. Take a class and learn something new! Go for a walk in thepark or take a bike ride around town. Read a book, make a gourmet meal, spend time inthe community, or have a game-night with friends and family. Instead of passively watchingand waiting to find out what suspect number 2 will say in an interview without beingread his rights, turn off the bad news and do something – do anything. By tuning into thebad news, you’re only giving them the attention they want and letting them win. Do youreally think you’ll miss what he is going to say or write anyway?Engaging keynote speaker and valued presentation coach, Matt Booth, is the attitude expert.
