Greetings y’all! ‘Tis I, the Scarecrow, coming at you in print once again! This has not been the best of times for this columnist. Usually, I write my best stuff when I’m really, really mad about something, or when I’m really, really happy about something. But, I’ve just been kind of depressed lately. And when that happens, I write stuff similar to what I wrote last issue. The kind of article where you read it and just have to ask “Is this person on something?” But hey, this is the Dag, and I’m sure you think that about half of the articles in here. I don’t know, maybe it’s just because of the conflicted life I lead. What? An inner struggle? That sounds like the makings of a great column. One so new and different, you’ll swear you’ve read it before.
