I get several newspapers. I don't normally read the obituaries (word for word), but I do skim thru them and look at the ages mostly.

Years ago, when I first started this website, for some strange reason I thought it would be a good idea to send out email newsletters. I think I sent out 5 or 6 over the course of 3 years. (Too much work for no benefit - bounced back emails that I would have to clean up, people unsubscribing and subcribing - which I had to do manually etc).

The Good Charlotte t-shirt ($1) is for me. They are locals (from the next county over...) so I had to get the shirt with their hometown name on it.

They had no reason to lie to me (and the girl worked at a record store) so I think she was telling the truth.
