Hand wash in room-temperature sparkling water only. Mineral water is okay in a pinch but, my god, never tap. Do not wear if you had or plan to have a big lunch. Do not wear these pants if you are too curvy; your body pressures the pants to perform the responsibility of being pants.

That wasn't your fault, the ridge got in the way. Just take a wet paper towel and wipe away that line and redraw... you know what? It's gonna be fine. It'll be abstract.

Confessions of a Professional Cuddler

Patrick Boyle

Some people call me a street cuddler. I prefer to be called a "comfort technician." Actually, I prefer to be called a Navy Seal, but the desist order from the Pentagon threw cold water all over that one.

Tackling Tolstoy was an emotional, as well as a financial investment. Even if you couldn't wade through the hefty prose, that beautiful hardback edition would display prominently on your oak bookshelf, right next to your edition of Finnegans Wake, by James Joyce.

Recently, Congress decided that cutting $40 billion from the food stamps program would be a good idea. After all, that budget works out to a whole couple of bucks a day for a portion of the 40+ million Americans living below the poverty line.

I had the strangest job interview the other day. After 30+ years in the workforce, this interview was by far the most enlightening, embarrassing, revealing and thought-provoking 30 minutes I've ever spent at the interrogation table.

If your particular cat crosses the line, and drops a few unwanted biological nuggets into your milk and cereal, or licks one of your eyeballs while you're half asleep, you might want to remind your kitty that it wasn't always an Internet star.

We gotta admit: even with all we know about how they like to do things in Red States, the boldness of this measure leaves us pretty stunned. Too many homeless in your burgeoning downtown? Just send 'em packing!

My experiences in the pews, and in the classroom, taught me that adults often profess knowledge about subjects they know very little about, and that my mind was prone to an enormous amount of speculative wandering.

Renee Fisher

Let's talk about bras. When we start wearing them, they are usually too big and they feel like alien beings have attached themselves to us. Our first heavy make out sessions can involve young men who have seemed up until that point perfectly normal, with all the required hands and fingers, fumbling with hooks, while we grit out teeth and silently scream, 'Just take the damn thing off!'

John and Adams Patriot are aspiring musicians who who live by what they claim to be true conservative principles. They believe they represent everything that's right with America. If you consider misogyny, racism and a near total lack of knowledge "right," maybe you'll agree.
