Flu Shot:  Do ya feel lucky? | The Reader Flu Shot: Do ya feel lucky?
So, I’ve got a 2018 Mercedes-Benz SL 550 roadster I’ll sell you. It’s only $107,225 but I’m gonna give you a deal. We’ll get some government subsidies and bring the price down to, oh, say, 25 grand. Does that work for you? Great. Just pick it up at any local Walgreen’s, Hy-Vee or high school nurse’s office.

With the Best of Intentions | The Reader With the Best of Intentions
It all started earlier this summer. I was flipping through my Facebook feed when I saw a confusing post by a local musician. It was an apology written as if she was being held prisoner and forced to write a confession.

Global Swarming | The Reader Global Swarming
The word is murmuration; one of my favorites. Sometimes I just like a word for being a word — how it sounds or how it looks or the thought picture it gives me when I say it out loud. Murmuration is one of those. Its etymology is the feminine gender, third declension Latin, meaning “low grumbling.” I’m not exactly sure how it got its modern meaning of representing a flock of birds swarming.
