Just a guy and a guitar - Greg Gelpi

Walking on to stage and hitting that first chord on his guitar, the packed house immediately silenced.

Encountering the counter - Michael Davis

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.

Is America on the rise or on the decline? - Bob Paslay

Pardon me while I play Socrates. By that I mean, I am wondering something but I truly don't know the answer. So I will be questioning and out of that questioning may come some enlightenment.
