Funny Papers Again Column | Missouri and Florida: Never the Twain Shall Meet?

Worthy to Print Column | Thankful for the Legion

If anyone knows me, they know that I am a veteran of the U.S. Army. I am proud to tell anyone that asks. I also suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I am one of the lucky ones. I found someone who understands...

Funny Papers Again Column | If Fiction Were Real: A Study in Human Emotion
