Sometimes you run across something on the internet that is just so perfect and right that you want to share it with everyone you know. I already posted this link on my Facebook page, my Twitter account, and my Google+ profile, but I felt like I needed to put it here as well, so as… Read More


Someone told me after I posted this that it might be their favorite thing I’ve ever written. That felt good, but the fact remains that there aren’t too many things worse in life than being dumped.

For the past three weeks, I have been a newspaper journalist … again. I originally worked for the Murray Ledger & Times newspaper in Murray, Kentucky, during the late 1990s/early 2000s.
