    ONE hell of a bill, this five-band lineup has kind of turned into a mini No Control Fest/EP release for Cusses' Here Comes the Rat EP. Seriously, this is a really good show if you like rock 'n' roll, so get there early and stay 'til the wee hours.

    After the gay marriage ruling, I've never seen such a widespread, spontaneous and genuine outpouring of joy, relief, and celebration from so many people as I saw that day, and the weekend to follow.

    To keep me from burning holes in the pool furniture with a magnifying glass and O.D.ing on Days of Our Lives , my mother handed me the biggest book she could find: The paperback edition of Gone with the Wind looked like a brick and weighed about as much, and I dubiously hefted it onto my lap. It took me all of a week to devour all 1,087 pages, love-hating spoiled Scarlett as I pined for Rhett and sobbed for Melanie.
