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 Bertino," "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.
