No I'm not ready for some football

Football players do not wear "man capri pants." And, if the skintight "not capri pants" happen to be white, those certainly are not "panty lines" you see encircling the players' backsides.

Cancer books a summer gig in Darien

On July 19, I had a dentist appointment to get my teeth cleaned. I go every three months because my gums are bad from childhood neglect, plus I like going to see Erica, my hygienist.

As entertaining as a dead opossum

MOULTRIE - So how does modern man define entertainment? This question came to me the other night as I watched "Billy the Exterminator." There I was in my recliner watching some man dressed up like a rock star crawling under a house to retrieve a dead possum. He's a TV star because he can retrieve a dead possum?

How we respond determines who wins

Win at life! Isn't that what we all want to do? That is the headline gracing one of the magazines sitting on our coffee table. I guess the real question is, "what defines winning at life?" After all, life has a pretty broad playing field. Maybe what best defines winning in life is society's dire need to be in control. Everyone values their independence and sense of control, right?
