The article was an example of what happens when you have no sleep, no time, and a depleted sense of humor. The whole big disastrous journey started earlier this week, when I thought I'd write an update about a few of my elementary/high school experiences. That worked until I got about halfway through writing it, when I realized it sucked and I hated it. I temporarily shelved the idea. Instead it will run two weeks from today, when I have more time to tinker with it and get it exactly how I want it.
On a side note, I picked up an extra front page a month. I'm doing a single Tuesday every four weeks now, along with my two Sudays. This week Petey and I will be working on something. We haven't decided what yet but I guarantee you it will be better than this update.
As for this article, again, sorry. It feels incomplete to me but I couldn't figure out how to add more to it without it dragging on (It's almost 1500 words as it is), and I figured it would be better to let it sit than add stuff I wasn't totally happy with to an article I didn't care much for in the first place. I hate putting something up I'm not at least kind of happy with, but time was running short and I needed to learn the new CMS. On that note...
Of course there are bound to be detractors, but I'm really happy with the new front page design and the majority of people seem to feel the same way. There are going to be initial bugs and so forth but once our crack team hammers them out I think Lowtax has something to be really proud of. Finally us writers have a classy design on which to place our Delta Burke scat jokes, and I think that's really a gift we can savor the rest of our lives.
On a minor note the new CMS was kind of vexing at first, but once I get the hang of it it's going to be pretty awesome. It has a lot of cool formatting options and other nerd things nobody but the SA writers will care about. Speaking of things nobody cares about:
This time around Pregame Wrapup will finally focus on something other than the NFL. I don't want to give too much away but it involves me acting like Gilbert Arenas and posting a fake blog. Well, I pretty much gave it all away there but whatever. You'll read it because you need it, maggot.
Thanks once again to all the kind readers who look at my stuff and double thanks to the ones who take time to write in. I require more attention than a 13-year-old girl to keep going, and without you guys I'd undoubtedly be doing something even less constructive with my life. Think about that when you think you got it bad, Mr. Thankless.

Maria Mitchell is shown holding a telescope to each eye, using them to ogle passing hunks on the street below. OOOGA! Her tongue rolls out like a firehose, her eyes comically bulging through the ends of the telescopes.
