I’m old school. I believe in complete sentences. I enjoy sprinkling punctuation throughout my writing in appropriate measure. 4 is just a number, and U is just a letter.

Ilf and Petrov were the "Borat" of their time, taking a biased look at Depression era America and making their observations with a lot of sarcasm and communist ideology. The authors' trip started near San Francisco and took them on a long circle through the country. They passed through Kansas City on their way.
It ain't easy being green. Just ask Elphaba, the future Wicked Witch of the West and the central character of Wicked, April's BookTalk selection at the Mid-Continent Public Library-Kearney Branch.
In Wicked, Gregory Maguire sets the "Merry Old Land of Oz" on its ear. And with wry wit, it tells the story from the perspective of the other girl who wore the ruby slippers. So, was the Wicked Witch of the West really evil or just misunderstood?
