From the Editors

We’re sitting in the corner having a conversation about non sequiturs. From across the room someone asks us why we are still here.  Another person says that we should just go home. “Does anyone want to read about chickens?” says a voice from behind me. “Here is a picture of it happening,” says one more. “I like: inadvertently interrupt the independence,” offers a third.

Okay,

Fine,

            Goodnight everybody,
