Rush Limbaugh: Unitard

I listen to Rush Limbaugh sometimes.

I don't like Rush Limbaugh, but I'm kind of fascinated by him.

In a lot of ways, he shouldn't be a legitimate voice in political discourse.

But, somehow, he is. Which means it's hard to ignore him or pass him off as shock jock.

The dude has a huge following, and his fans are passionate about his ideas.

All of these things are terrifying to me.

"You'll appreciate that more when you're my age."

I drove 3 hours to see The Girl With Two Names.

I knew her first from Facebook, then text messages, and finally, from Skype.

But never in person.

We had mutual acquaintances, so we knew that neither was a psycho or secretly a 40-year-old man, but it was still somewhat of a nerve-wracking concept.

But I was suffocating in Auburn.

Disappearing Boy

So, hopefully you've noticed that I haven't posted my weekly story in two weeks (if my math and memory serve.)

It's not because I'm lazy.

It's because a gauntlet has been thrown, and I have been given a opportunity and a challenge that could greatly alter the course of my life, so I have been devoting all my energy into that project.

A Drew Meeks Update

So, I wrote about Drew Meeks a few weeks ago and sent him the link.

He always told me to make a movie about him, so I thought the story might be a nice consolation prize for the time being.

The next day I got a very nice response from him, so I thought I'd share it as a bonus post.

Johnny and Roy

For those of you that don't know, I work at a television station.

Even though I live 45 minutes and a county away from where I work, it's such a rural area that the station covers Stevenson and the greater Jackson County area.

Everyone with an e-mail account at my station gets police reports from local sheriffs' offices.

I always check the Jackson County Sheriff's Report, because, more times than not, I know the person who has died or been arrested.

Last week the report stated that a man's body had been found in the water behind the Mud Creek Restaurant.

Origin Story

Words are pretty fucking great.

I mean look above this. They're totally kicking that kid's ass.

Dumb jokes aside, I digress...

The Note

Dear Coach Hauser...

Alex was hot.

She was a senior when I was a freshman.

She was in the band with me.

She was sexually active.
