    Email is right above the comments, obviously it isnt visible enough though.  Digg, well most of our stuff doesn’t make sense for that audience.  Thanks for the ideas!

    Easley’s whiter than Larry Bird.  I know a good doctor overseas that can probably pop that thing back in for him, and on the taxpayers dime too.

    Maybe they should name it the fist-bump of death.
