Missing the action of your life - By Zach Porter

Over New Year's weekend, many of you watched bowl games on TV. You watched as the same play was repeated again in slow motion then again in slow motion but with computer generated chalk marks keying you in on important components you probably missed. You poured beer and chips down the hatch while listening to ceaseless commentary and play by plays. You relived the same moments over and over until something else worth repeating indefinitely occurred. I did not. I cleaned and rearranged my room, got my oil changed and actually read a book, (gasp!).

Coming back ?home' to Georgia - Kathy Jefcoats

Back in Georgia. I said that so many times during the 14 months I worked at the daily newspaper in Aiken, S.C., that my co-workers started shouting out "B.I.G." whenever I began telling a story about "where I used to work." It is funny to me, too, because I am a St. Louis native who lived most of my life in Georgia n first Macon, then Carrollton n but never thought of Georgia as "home."
