Taupe, ecru, tawny? No, brown! - R.H. Joseph

Once again mired in the re-decorating blues (Is He testing me?), I am at wit's end, rendered stark raving mad by the myriad choices available to one lucky (or unlucky) enough to be born in The Land of Plenty.

Memories of JFK assassination - Tamara Boatwright

For the last few weeks we have been asking for readers' memories of Nov. 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Dad's policies sound pretty good - Bob Paslay

What a difference some years make in our perspective. I remember distinctly sitting around with others full of bloodlust and enthusiasm after Americans kicked the Iraqis out of Kuwait and bemoaning the fact that George Bush was a wimp and didn't follow through and invade Iraq.

Living life is not a chore - Zach Porter

There are some people I've met who as far as I can tell define their lives as: A. Stuff and B. Whatever it takes to get the stuff done. "Just get it done" – that's their motto.

You live in a box, you drive in a box, you watch other "personalities" on a box, and you will ultimately rest in a box. Why not loosen up in the meantime and come out of your shell? Do you really want to view life as a series of items to check off a "to-do list"?

What is it? Entermation? Infotainment? - Rob Felt

Some people spend more time on their couch than the pillows do. Prime Time means resting their post-work laurels with a bowl of Sodium Crunchies in their lap and soaking up some quality alpha waves from the big blue eye. These faithful followers wield grease-stained remote ray guns and fire off attention-deficit blasts of infrared Nielsen radiation.
