Introducing Nevada Jack

Nevada Jack’s writings often appear in this blog. His preferred genres are satire and parody. I thought I better introduce him. Nevada Jack was given to me by some friends right before I first moved west. At first, I called him "Yukon Jack," after the Canadian-copy of Southern Comfort (both terribly sweet whiskies). But then I was asked to do a program for some kids and decided I could use the bear as a prop, but that some of the kids might know Yukon Jack and it wouldn’t be appropriate. So Yukon Jack got on the wagon and has been known as Nevada Jack ever since. He’s a great companion. He never complains and is always even tempered. I hope all my readers have at least one friend so dependable and stable.

I began to use Nevada Jack as a pen name when I was living in Utah and writing for an underground newspaper and didn’t want my house to be burned down by left-over Danites.



If you look back in my blog history, you’ll find many Nevada Jack articles:

  1. I learned the value of a pen name after writing a letter to the editor of the state rag that said what the majority thought but wouldn't say out loud and left the minority very angry. Although only my name and town was published, I received lots of "fan" mail thanks to the ability of finding people via the internet. (My search for your park on Tuesday a great example though without bad intentions.) After that, I decided that when ever I voiced an opinion that might be unpopular among some, to the point of possible retribution, I adopted a pen name. So after much thought, I chose the name of a man who was deceased and who was the king of pissing off people, Edward Abbey.
