Last call at the 7-eleven : fine dining at 2 a.m., the search for spandex people, and other reasons to go on living by Kevin Cowherd( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The country might be going to hell in a hand-basket, but don't close the garage doors and sit there with the engine running until you read this collection of sardonic, off-the-wall pieces on modern life by one of America's best  humorists. Described as "another Dave Barry, only with a lot less going for him," Baltimore Sun columnist Kevin Cowherd sizzles as he tackles such loopy subjects as:    - Larry King's interview with God ("El Paso, Texas, you're on the air with the Almighty . . ."    - Fine dining at a 7-Eleven at 2 a.m. ("Moving briskly past the  Test-Your-Blood-Pressure machine and the Hormel chili section, we arrive at the rack of Slim Jims.")    - $20 million lottery winners who insist on keeping their jobs ("Oh yeah, I'll be back at Mr. Tire first thing in the morning.")    - The joys of backyard wiffleball ("Wiffleball is for anyone willing to shrug off a full speed collision with a tool shed and six months of subsequent blackouts just to snare a grounder up the middle.")    - Thanksgiving dinner with Howard Stern ("Yo, sweetie, pass the cranberry sauce. What are you, stupid? Only a friggin' moron would pass the mashed potatoes when I asked for the cranberry sauce.")    - Modest people looking for love in the personals ("5-foot-9 guy with spare tire, bags under his eyes, not much of a chin, looks like your grocer, seeks woman.")

Way down in the hole : the meteoric rise, tragic fall and ultimate redemption of America's most promising cop by Ed Norris( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ed Norris' career arc was dazzling. He spent 20 years as a crime-fighting savant with the New York Police Department, rising from beat cop to deputy commissioner of operations at age 36. As police commissioner of Baltimore, he breathed life into a demoralized force that lowered the city's infamous homicide count for the first time in a decade. After the 911 attacks, he took over the Maryland State Police and pushed innovative anti-terrorism strategies that made him a national leader in the field. At the University of Virginia, they taught a graduate course about how his leadership techniques transformed one of the most violent cities in the country. He was the golden boy of law enforcement, a brash, larger-than-life figure with a taste for fine restaurants, bespoke clothing and fast motorcycles. Then it all came crashing down. An investigation into a little-known police expense account morphed into what many felt was a politically-motivated hit job by federal prosecutors. Corruption charges were spiced with lurid allegations of pricey dinners with women and gifts purchased at Victoria's Secret. Ed Norris protested his innocence, but landed in federal prison. Thus began the hellish ordeal that ultimately cost him his livelihood, reputation, health and marriage. This is the incredible story of America's most promising cop, the dark forces that brought him down and his long, emotional journey back from the abyss
Hale storm : the incredible saga of Baltimore's Ed Hale, including a secret life with the CIA by Kevin Cowherd( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most interesting man in the world? At times, Ed Hale made the Dos Equis guy look like a shut-in. Now for the first time, Hale's inspiring story is told in the pages of Hale Storm. It's a rollicking, inspirational tale like no other: a kid from gritty Sparrow's Point, Md., has his fill of back-breaking work in the steel mill, thumbs his nose at college and sets off to seek his fortune. With an equal measure of brains and guts, he conquers the worlds of business and industry, buys an indoor soccer team, hobnobs with princes, politicians and heads of state, works covertly for the Central Intelligence Agency, dates a succession of astonishingly beautiful women and builds an iconic tower in the midst of the grimy Baltimore waterfront that helps transform acres of forlorn industrial ruin into a thriving neighborhood. The tough times are chronicled here, too: Hale's swings and misses on two turbulent marriages, his history-making divorce from his first wife, union problems and death threats, the plane crashes he survived, the business deals that went sour, the distinctive tower he was forced to sell and the heart-wrenching decision to walk away from the beloved bank that he founded and nurtured for so many years. It's a singular story of an American original that readers won't want to miss
