It’s been a year since our good friends Alexis Tioseco and Nika Bohinc were murdered in their home. Up until now, there has been no movement on the case and none of us know why they were killed. All I know is that it wasn’t a robbery and that the authorities have not done a proper investigation. I should know. Along with the Tioseco family, I’ve met too many police officials, bureaucrats, investigators, lawyers, politicians, psychics, and inept people named Agnes to say otherwise.
Alexis, in particular, meant a lot to those of us here in UNO. He’d even sit in during our editorial meetings. He was very much a part of what this magazine was all about, why we all chose to take on the challenge of doing it. But our friendship with him went well beyond working together. At least for me, he was no less than a brother. And I’m lucky that I was able to tell him that I loved him before he died. I told it to him quite often actually and he never gave up on me even when I gave up on myself.
This post is dedicated to that cool girl who has been on my mind lately (you know who you are). You bring my mind to new heights every time we converse. Your smile brings shining light to my gloomy days. Your endless compliments make me feel like the king of the world. We are both in this natural flow with each other especially because you inspire me, allow me to be funnier and wittier, and force my brain to work in wonderful ways. I cannot use logic to explain why I share this powerful connection with you and this strong desire to dive deeper into your mind, I can only say it’s intuition. What I’m basically trying to say is that I just want to keep getting to know you better.
