new from above/ground press: Something or Other, by Jason Heroux

Something or Other
Jason Heroux


The process of assuming control of someone’s territory and applying one’s own systems of law, government and religion is called something. In 1492 Christopher Columbus discovered something in 1969 Neal Armstrong stepped on something in 1915 Albert Einstein published his theory of something.

In Judges 14:14 Samson says, “Out of the eater came something to eat.”
