Rapper's arrest a bad omen for the summer - Justin Boron

The full impact of Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane's murder charge is still unclear. But I'm willing to forecast a dark emotional climate around metro Atlanta if Mane is ultimately indicted and incarcerated for a long, protracted murder trial.

The skin of my teeth - Rob Felt

It's been nearly an hour of this. My mouth is half open, very dry and laced with a tangy medicinal flavor. Glancing at my watch every 30 seconds doesn't seem to be making the time go any faster, but at this point it's the only form of entertainment I can focus on.

Encountering the counter - Michael Davis

They divide their forces. Both with arms-full of cereal, fruit, various beverages and toiletries. The one in cargo pants and thong sandals sidesteps to her right, craning her neck over a middle-aged man with a basket half-filled with goat cheese é the other half with tofu.
