Request For Suggestions

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Is it actually interesting to an outside observer that I did not learn to ride a bicycle until the weekend after my college graduation ceremony? Has everyone else already made a decision as to whether cable stations should cut out blackface song-and-dance numbers when broadcasting fifty-year-old movies?

In any case, if you wish I'd write a column about a particular topic, let me know. Maybe I have forgotten some hilarious, columnworthy story that I have told you.
