Yes I have been trying to improve my writing skills and to adopt some new perspectives. No, I have not yet succeeded and, no, I do not deem twenty years in pursuit of those illusive goals excessive. In any event, I signed up for the Wesleyan University Creative Writing Specialization Program. Tuition is typically $84,000…

Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center® Model SW1911 Did you notice they are not all the same?
