And Now for These Messages...

May I recommend the CHNotebook as great reading at 4:49 AM especially if you don't want to get back to sleep? The mind boggles at the brazeness of the CHCA President and Reverend as the writings of Laurence and Martha point out just a few of the bold mistruths of the final word and the level to which the blame game has risen.

I will write a little something today, when I am truly awake, but in the meantime I share the following with my fellow writers, so as to inspire continued excellence among the bloggers.

* Her date was pleasant enough, but she knew that if her life was a movie this guy would be buried in the credits as something like "Second Tall Man."
Russell Beland, Springfield

* Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.
Jennifer Hart, Arlington
