George Zimmerman is probably guilty of something — but not murder, at least according to a Florida jury.
Rain, rain ... stick around. Rain seems to be the dominant force in weather around here these days.. The water that falls from the sky has gotten to be such a common occurrence that I'm confused when I look up and see blue sky or the sun -- for the few

Kick 'em all out.. I'm talking about the latest group of sinners in baseball. If it turns out that A-Rod, et al., were using performance enhancing drugs then strip them of their records, kick them out of the sport, and if they committed crimes, put
As I've told you before, perhaps verbatim, I love a good conspiracy theory. Ditto a good ghost story, monster yarn and tales of the unexplained. I guess they appeal to my imagination, which has always been a blessing and curse.
