Having fun with death and dying - Kathy Jefcoats

Death and dying, funeral homes and cemeteries have always fascinated me although I am not sure why. When I lived in St. Louis, my family was friends with another family whose father was a caretaker of a cemetery. The family lived in a white house at the end of a long driveway behind the cemetery. At night, while our folks played cards and ate chocolate cake with white icing and drank black coffee, we kids played among the tombstones and swore we saw lights dancing among the graves. I don't ever remember being really scared, just fascinated. What would happen if a bony hand really did bust through the dirt and grass and grab my ankle while I passed by? I guess that explains my attraction to Stephen King.

Swerving to the right - Zach Porter

Much like presidential candidate John Kerry, I've flip-flopped my voting habits in the last two presidential elections. To paraphrase Mr. Kerry, "I actually voted for a Republican, before I voted against one." Bob Dole in 1996, Al Gore in 2000 (And by the way who has kidnapped the Gore I voted for and replaced him with the one ranting about the resignation of Don Rumsfeld, as if infected by a dose of Howard Dean venom). I joke, but what follows is a timeline of events in which I became increasingly disenchanted with liberals. And now after having all the liberalism flushed out of my system, I'm refreshed and ready to go to the polls to cast my vote for Bush.
