Getting a new house in order - Clay Wilson

My mother is depressed. I don't think she would mind me sharing this, because she has a perfectly legitimate reason for her mood.

Stand forth, anonymous coward - Ed Brock

What kind of weak ninny seeks anonymous publicity?

A subscription to glossy culture - Rob Felt

The car's engine hasn't fully wound down and my feet hit the pavement with a noticeable determination. Striding across the parking lot of my apartment complex the anticipation swells. Will I get one today, or maybe even two? I approach the bank of square metal doors and key into my designated cubby.

Louisianaizing a Louisiana boy - Bob Paslay
