Making myself comfortable at the bookstore - Bob Paslay

OK, I finally did it. I went into Barnes & Noble, plopped down in one of their overstuffed comfortable chairs and read an entire $25 novel. Well, I didn't do it in one sitting but three and not one Barnes & Noble but two, but I read Caleb Carr's novel about Sherlock Holmes, The Italian Secretary. I am a big Caleb Carr fan but in this case I have too many books and I intended to read just a few pages but I kept on going.

The greater dangers of selfishness - Gerry Yandel

Pets of the Week

Victoria is a 3 year old, tortie domestic shorthair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Victoria was living as a stray and eating out of garbage cans prior to coming to Clayton County Humane Society. She is a very sweet, gentle cat. She likes to find quiet, out-of-the-way places, where she tends to nap her days away. She has been at CCHS for several years, so the Humane Society is very anxious to find a permanent, loving home for Victoria. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770)471-9436 or visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.

Have I changed or the movies? - Zach Porter

By the time the opening sequence of Star Wars Episode III kicked off with a dizzying and visually bland space battle I already had a headache from the twenty-plus minutes of punch-your-face-in-and-blow-your-socks-off previews of the other movies that are headed our way like an endless barrage of missiles. However, most of these assaults on our eyes and ears turn out to be duds, fizzling out after the opening credits.
