MARK WHITNEY: "SHORT STORIES"
I was at Denny's this morning, enjoying my plate of sodium and cup of fructose, thinking about what a healthy eater I am now that my sons are grown. For example, I don't eat at taco restaurants anymore because from a health standpoint, I'm worried that the filler meat under the three melted cheeses, sour cream, guacamole, refried beans, mayo and bacon bits, may not be real beef.

MOVING RIGHT ALONG: FRAMES OF REVERENCE

We all talk about "frame of reference."  In fact, I was typing that phrase today and I screwed up and it came out "frame of reverence."

Moving Right Along: Spirits of Place
You’ll find a torii in front of every Shinto shrine in Japan. You’ll also see them free-standing, like this one, wherever there seems to be a vortex of kami, or spirits of place. Many of them stand in seawater, either in the ocean or in bays. Read More

Moving Right Along: Mr. Natural
Okay, so now we live in towns and cities and for most of us scenery is something we see on television. But we came out of the natural world, and it's got lessons for us. A lot of the time when we feel we're stuck in our lives, we're forgetting one or more of those lessons. Read More

Shadoe Stevens: Fear, Panic and Anal Leakage
There are a lot of reasons to be afraid - and really good reasons for being alarmed. Everywhere we turn there’s another reminder - for every ache, pain, itch and twitch, relief is a snap - but disclaimers replace comfort with caution: could cause depression, suicide, projectile diarrhea, and anal leakage.

Moving Right Along: The Nozer
Not to sound self-important, but I've discovered one of the most important components of the human psyche.
