I debated for some time over whether or not I should write this article, due to my sensitivity over today’s society, when it comes to basic ethics/morals.

PEOPLE ARE INHERENTLY GOOD: One Thing upon which Secularist and Religionist Can Agree But Sometimes With Bad Results. A Ph.

How to Relieve Boredom

BOREDOM: PERHAPS IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK When I think of boredom, I remember a Sally Forth comic I read; allow me to paraphrase. Sally is lugging a basket of dirty clothes through her messy living room and is looking a bit tired and disheveled. Her daughter is stretched out on the couch, and says

A friend of mine and I were having a discussion the other day. It started out innocently enough, but he had to push his point. He was talking about a drive-in theater and it came up that I had never been to one. I guess he could tell that I had something against them and
