Just had to throw this in: This morning in the paper, there was another article about Despair, Inc.--except it wasn't the usual locally-written interview with my brother-in-law that seems to happen every year once the new calendars come out. This one is from the Providence Journal, and it appeared on the editorial page, of all things (the annual one usually is found in the "Texas Living" section). It's written by columnist Philip Terzian, and you can read it here.
Remember the mantra: "Buy cool stuff for yourself, and feed Kev's nephews at the same time." *grins impishly*
