Are We Afraid of Our Own Government?

I have a cat named Xena the Warrior Princess, which is a diverting misnomer because she is one of the timidest animals alive. Admittedly, as far as staying alive, running away from trouble is a successful stratagem for Xena, who spends her days concealed in the bushes, … Continue reading

The Exhausted Smiley Face Emoticon

This has gone on long enough. It’s time to discuss the smiley face — :-) Isn’t it adorable? I confess that I just learned how to create it by reading an E-How article.  :-) I’ll stop now. I know you’re tired … Continue reading
