I should have mentioned this earlier, but if you wanted a good, recent snapshot of Muncie, Indiana ("America's Hometown®") then you should have read Thursday's edition of The Star Press. The paper covered the story about a homeless man throwing his urine at teenagers and the ballyhoo surrounding the opening of the newest Wal-Mart in town. The article concerning Wal-Mart featured the following:
Some members of the crowd grew restless during the 30-minute opening ceremony Wednesday morning. "Get 'er done!" one man in the crowd shouted.
At least one man appeared to have kept his son out of school to show him the store.
"They're not going to give you a tardy for going to Wal-Mart," the man was overheard telling the boy.
Target, probably, but Wal-Mart? Never!!!

ITEM! April 1 was an anniversary for Those Funky Idiots. The strip has been on the web for five years! I celebrated this milestone by doing absolutely nothing.
ITEM! The Food Network has stopped airing the original Iron Chef! Blasphemy!
ITEM! Last Saturday I had the pleasure to see The Rocky Horror Show at the Muncie Civic Studio Theatre with my friends, Jerry and Judy Cole. It was a really fun show with a great cast (Hello, Joe Skeen!) and I highly recommend it!
ITEM! My Mom broke her wrist while rollerskating this past Wednesday. She's doing fine and I hope her wrist quickly mends. Take it easy, Mom!
