It's just too easy

Where? To? Start?

Driving through Alabama last weekend, making fun of candidates' names -- Twinkle? Really? -- I saw this one. Seriously, best name ever. The campaign totally writes itself:

"I trust Alabama's money with Young Boozer."

"Don't be a loser, vote for the Boozer."

You get the idea.

Catching up

Hey, wow. So I've got more than 60,000 hits now and haven't hadn't posted anything new in a year and a half.

Seriously, thanks for reading, everyone. Mostly, I owe thanks to the legion of folks who, like me, enjoy imagining that the Harry Potter books are filled with naughty bits...

I've still been writing a bit, on the side. Here are some freelance pieces I put together for the Savannah Morning News:

* A story on that city's Psychotronic Film Festival.
* A profile of Patty Loveless.
* A short profile of Randall Bramblett.
* And several other stories as part of advance coverage of the 2010 Savannah Music Festival.

It's funny how now, approaching two years out of journalism proper, the length of newspaper stories feels stifling. But it sure makes every word count. Or should.
