The rain last night was a blessing, so what did it bless? Here, Lettuce. Lord, lots of lettuce. Salad with two meals per day. Could have lettuce smoothies or lettuce oatmeal if such things weren’t gross.

People often say to me: “The newspaper stinks. The newspaper missed the point. The newspaper didn’t cover [insert your thing here].”
It both stinks and there’s not enough of it, you say?
Well, when’s the last time you paid for news? Is it not true that you get what you pay for?
So, I like [...]
(IE users I think will have to go to Fiddle to see this)
Good afternoon and welcome to my new line of work, data visualizations.
It’s what all the cool kids use to tell stories these days rather than words.
Anyway, these are the bachelors degrees that kids in [...]
Usually, these innumerable honoring resolutions that come out from the state Legislature don’t catch my ear.
But this one did. Cause Screven County came up to ATL to honor its economic development department … and naming its marquee companies, listed King America Finishing.
King America Finishing? Of the Ogeechee fish kill? The textile [...]
“[I]t is estimated that the overall fee to process your request will equal approximately One Thousand Sixty Four Dollars ($1,064.00),” read a disheartening letter I got from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, when I asked them to send me a list of what they confiscated at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport from 2003 to 2012.
Well, dang. [...]
