Tweets of the Week

Wow, offering you the articles I've read online is certainly easier than piling newspapers and magazines on your desk or coffee table (or the rack next to the commode.)

Its a mystery wrapped in an enigma: really? You can't spot a bad teacher?

Just threw this last one in because its cool and a little weird at the same time. I have always liked the ferret girl the best.
