Americans still struggle with obesity - April Avison

We all know that obesity in America is more than a problem – it has become deadly. A recent government study found that in 2000, "poor diet" was responsible for more than 400,000 deaths, running a close second to tobacco-related deaths, which numbered 435,000.

Here's an idea that should be terminated - Clay Wilson

You're fired!" I just wanted to put those words in print one last time, while it's still legal for me to do so.

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?

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

It's an attraction to the music - Kathy Jefcoats

Elton John turns 57 this week, Thursday, to be exact. After several years of following Donny Osmond, David Cassidy and the Jackson Five, I fell in love with Elton John n obsessed, even. 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.
