Over the years, I have gone to a good deal of trouble to keep bugs out of my food.
Even after a quarter-century of marriage, it appears, you can still have the occasional bout with an epiphany.
There’s a one-word question, made to no one in particular, on the lips of a whole lot of Americans right now. Why?
Sometimes you’re just better off not knowing.
It’s amazing what a picture can do sometimes. You look at it, and you don’t just see the image. You smell it. You hear it. You even taste it.
Back when I was a kid in church — or in one of those summer revivals where the sweltering Georgia heat gave you the distinct feeling you had something of an idea of what waited ahead for the great unwashed — nothing bothered me more than the preacher talking about what was going to happen on the Great Gettin’ Up Morning.
