To be or not to be psychoanalyzed

Filling the existential hole where the factory of awesome Mexican meat logs should be

By Edwin Decker
Forty pounds. That's the amount of weight I've shaved off my torso, ass, thighs and chins. Forty bona-fide, USDA grade-A pounds since late January—just before W. said she was leaving.

Wow, I guess I’m a bigot after all

It turns out everybody is an intolerant bastard

By Edwin Decker
Now, I've been called a bigot plenty before, but it never bothered me, because, well, I know that I'm not one. Indeed, I have been squawking against prejudice for as long as I've known how to squawk, have always been on the side of civil rights and have gleefully used this column to attack those who aren't.

Oh, Satanism, how you disappoint me
