Divas and romance

The game of love and all it entails, would be much simpler if men played by the rules of gracious Southern womanhood. This would require men to unfailingly treat us with courtesy, respect and thoughtfulness.

Misinformation rife in creationism vs. evolution

Could it be that doctor Jeremy Conley has finally discredited the largely mystical and undoubtedly nonscientific theories of evolution? Will a much deserved Nobel Prize finally fall upon Fayette County, Georgia?
