RAM: Random Articles and Manuscripts is a collection of thirty-eight writings and essays that reflect author Jay Dubya's personality and philosophy. Articles range from biographical sketches to the author's humorous adventures, and the manuscript section is dedicated to the writer's observations about matters that run the modern-day social spectrum from the Iraq War to inherent problems associated with American society. Some of the articles in this work originally appeared in the Hammonton (New Jersey) Gazette and in the Hammonton News. In the Articles section of the book, accounts recalling the writer's personal memories of certain people are represented in the stories A Young James Berti, Mr. Charles B. Sipley and Little League Baseball. Humorous experiences are recounted in A Tale of Two Counties, Misadventures in Furnitureland and Catty Cat Catching. The author's youth is recollected in the renditions Growing-up in Hammonton and Dogwood Hollow: 1954-'55. And incidents from Jay Dubya's thirty-four-year teaching career are described in School Assemblies, Williamsburg School Trips and The High School Faculty. In the Manuscripts section, such essay subjects as Rap Music Is Not Music, Why Jimmy Brown Doesn't Write and Multicultural Education are skillfully presented. Other thoughtful essays are also included with Freedom Isn't Free, American Education Is Wasteful and The Trouble with American Democracy. The creative work Gerunds, Verbals and Participial Adjectives is a zany effort that pokes fun at the complexity and diversity of the English language and its complicated grammar usage.
