Issue: August 27, 2009

Hi everybody,

Get ready for our literary Munchkinland! This week, we’re presenting the winning stories from our short fiction contest. It’s a diverse batch, ranging from heartbreaking moments of divorce to funny conversations at bus stops, and every story is 95 words or less. We’re also presenting the justification you’ve always wanted to complain about the air freshener in your mother’s car, a review of the new Quentin Tarantino flick, and a story about a grown man learning to love baseball. We also debunk some of the mythical horrors of health-care reform. And last but not least, we examine a favorite food of Reno’s late-night diners, the Egg McNeva.

Thanks for reading! If it wasn’t for you, we’d still be asleep.



PS I’m filling in because Brian’s on “staycation.”
