FOND MEMORIES
One fine collector: I had the pleasure of befriending Rob in the mid-to-late 1980s, and he was always willing to make mixtapes from his amazing collection, of which I still have a few of those cassettes ["Last Collector Standing: Long-time Local Musician (and Current Euclid Records Employee) Rob Wagoner," Jon Scorfina]. His contribution to the mid-1980s KCFV (89.5 FM) radio show Faster & Louder was always a learning experience for anyone lucky enough to have been able to be around to hear it back then. It made being around a radio on Saturday nights essential.

GIVE LIP HAIR A BREAK
A tax break, that is: Indeed, people of Mustached American heritage, after supporting the government's request to improve American good looks by 22 percent, are owed retribution in the form of $250 annually ["Mustache Institute Demands Tax Break for Lip Hair," Chad Garrison]. It's a small price to pay for good looks and for supporting American companies that make items needed to maintain a Mustached American lifestyle such as mustache trimmers, wax, bacon grease and condoms.

KILL BILL
Slippery slope: I'm curious about the ramifications of this ["Bill Allows Pregnant Women to Kill Someone Threatening Their Unborn Child," Chad Garrison]. At first glance, it sounds perfectly reasonable, but I have to wonder why twenty people didn't think it was. Does this open a door for a third party to kill someone whom they perceive to be threatening the life of someone else's unborn baby? (Say, a doctor who performs a legal abortion.) To harm a woman's unborn child, an aggressor would logically have to do substantial harm to the woman. I would think that threat would give a woman reason to believe force is necessary to protect herself, and thus, her child.

FOOT IN MOUTH
Keep on digging, Glenn: I imagine the backhoe that Glenn Miller is renting from the Home Depot to dig himself an even deeper hole is costing the state of Missouri a pretty penny ["Racist Missouri Senate Hopeful Glenn Miller Interviewed by Howard Stern," Chad Garrison].

WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT
Maybe next time: It would have been cool if Google Maps would have captured the actual body lying on the driveway ["Marcus Gosa, East St. Louis Homicide No. 5, Found in Driveway With Bullet to Head," Chad Garrison].
