Quit Your Belly-Aching

If you don’t mind, I gotta get something off my chest. It’s been bothering me for some time now, so maybe it gets your knickers in a twist as well. Fact is, I have multiple sclerosis.  You probably have MS too. Either that or you have some other gimpy malady that lumps you in with …

Potty Mouth

Potty Mouth

Going to the bathroom is something most people don’t even think about. It just happens.  It’s natural.

The BCS MS Bowl Season

The BCS MS Bowl Season

    On Sunday, the BCS announced the complete college football bowl schedule. Thirty-five games in all.  And once again, not one game–not a single down, will be played in honor of those of us with multiple sclerosis.   Shunned.  Those rat bastards.   Well, my shuffling friend, all that is about to change!
