Suburbs aren't really ?safe havens' - April Avison

It's easy to pass judgment on parents when you've never been one but it still amazes me that some people believe that wealth and privilege will save their children from all things that are bad.

The art of addressing the masses - Billy Corriher

Deer in headlights or on a plate - Kathy Jefcoats

As you cross into Clayton County, there is a black and yellow sign warning you about the possibility of deer crossing for the next five miles. The first time I read it I laughed out loud. I think there should be such a sign at all entries into Georgia. "We're glad Georgia is on your mind. Watch for deer. We're not kidding."

Murray's merry melancholia - Zach Porter

After delivering thousands of deadpan lines in a voice that's overconfident with a hint of depression comfortably worn-in like an old shoe, Bill Murray has finally received recognition for emoting his subtle pains on the silver screen. He has been nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Actor category for the film "Lost in Translation." Fans felt he got snubbed in 1999 for his turn as rich but disappointed steel tycoon Herman Blume in "Rushmore." In "Lost in Translation," Murray plays an aging actor much like himself who is out of his element in a foreign land. The film was written (and directed) by Sofia Coppola, no doubt, with Murray in mind.
