He's Off Again
Ol' Chuck is gone to his favorite fishing hole for a few days. But, thoughtful soul that he his, he left a new Tale over at 'redneckin' for us to enjoy while he's gone. And with each successive story of his Alabama boyhood, he shoots down (honest, no pun intended!) child psychiatrists' current opinion that childhood violence may predict serial killer adulthood. Unless you count furry critters as victims, that is. Have fun Chuck.

Rogue No More!
And proud of it. How exciting to be re-categorized as a "Scattered Asteroid" by Jay Solo. A big step up from Rogue! Jay's new home reflects a whole lot of work that he can rightly be proud of. See it here.

Lean On Me
Glenn, over at Hi. I'm Black, could use a few verses from Ben E. King about now. Stop by and give him a cyber-friend's support.
