Mouse-click away from new career - Billy Corriher

I've been such a fool. For so long, I've been going to doctors whenever I needed medical attention. Why should I trust the advice of a guy just because he went to some medical school?

Slushies and bad customer service - Rob Felt

Last week I asked you, the reader, to submit ideas for this week's column. Responses ranged from short ideas to the flattering suggestion that I should give up photography and write full time. There was also a comment from someone who thought I was soliciting ideas to boost my own ego and that I might not have any quality material left to work with.

Don't think, don't reflect - R.H. Joseph

Nearly every inch of my bedroom walls was covered in his posters and magazine cutouts of his campy, bespectacled mug. I made a pencil holder out of an empty jelly jar that I glued on smaller cutouts of him in various costumes. I still have it but the posters are long gone.

Can you hear me now? - Bob Paslay

People who know me know that I don't own much of the new technology, but I don't particularly have anything against it. I just don't see the need for it, and believe deep down that it probably diminishes my life like the truck I own that keeps me from walking anywhere.

The straight, paved road home - Ed Brock

This is the last installment in a three-part series on my misadventures on the Sipsey River in Alabama.
