Dear Mr. President: We have a sports-related crisis (04/01/09)
Life isn't fair. It's an axiom we're taught just like we're taught to raise our hands, talk with a "six-inch voice" indoors and not to hit girls (I do great at the last one, but generally fail miserably at the first two).

Allergies or criminal? (04/01/09)
Ahh, springtime. The opening of baseball season, the return of songbirds and warmer weather and allergies. Spring is a wonderful time if you don't have seasonal allergies.
