    Mall of Misfortune

    This is old news, but when I read it I had to post it in Madness.  This is what happens when you've got the wet dreams of capitalism, but no idea on how it works.  Supply comes years before demand.  Try to read this article and see if you can stop yourself from laughing.  I couldn't.

    KISS -- new album

    For us KISS fans...  The new album souds like it should be a good sound.  A lit bit of classics mixed with the heavier stuff from the 80s.  None of the 'Psycho Circus' silliness which is their worst album after that disco one 'Unmasked'.

    An example of parenting. Too harsh? Or appropriate?

The following story is short, but interesting...
