Go Martha, go Martha, go Martha - Bob Paslay

If I were one of the federal jurors in the Martha Stewart case, immediately after finding her not guilty I would go to the other end of the courthouse and file a civil suit against the government for wasting weeks of my life.

Doing it my way in NYC - Kathy Jefcoats

So when last I left my faithful readers I had made it to Manhattan for my trip of a lifetime. I know many people aspire to Paris or Rome or somewhere equally romantic but I love New York and I can't help it.

The Passion of Howard Stern - Rob Felt

Drawing a comparison between shock radio specialist Howard Stern and Jesus Christ requires an amount of dexterity I wouldn't trust to my fellow columnists, so I will make the twists and bends myself.

Killing Jews is a really bad idea - R.H. Joseph

Trust: A matter of inches - Greg Gelpi

Whizzing through the serpentine streets of the big city of Atlanta, it flashed before my eyes.

A short history of heliography - Zach Porter

In 1826 Nicephore Niepce produced the oldest known example of an image recorded onto a light sensitive surface in France with a material called asphaltum. In 1839 Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre perfected a photographic process using silver halide coated copper plates, fumed over iodine crystals, exposed for several minutes in a clunky camera and then processed out using a hot mercury bath. It sounds real easy, yes, but certainly not as easy as using your new camera phone that fits inside the hip pocket. You photo enthusiasts, you passive dabblers who fancy yourselves virtuosos, you've got it made. Taking just one photo used to be an all-day ordeal for our beloved pioneers of what Sir John Herschel dubbed photography (or heliography if you prefer the Greek root).
