Op Ed: Can't We Be Adults About This? →
Should we legalize weed? Whether you’re for or against you have to agree, we just need to sit down and talk about this like adults. Oh and you have to agree with me. Because I’m right. Always.

Yet Another “End of the World” Post? | Mick →
Imagine a world where sunlight is blocked out by clouds of ash, all wildlife ceases to exist, and the few humans that have survived have adopted a cutthroat lifestyle as a means to get by. Bummer.
"I read your book you SOB!"* | Torpey →
Just in case you’re not familiar with the Ohio State - Michigan rivalry, well, it’s kind of a big deal.

Don't Panic | Mick →
It’s Thursday. And if you’re like Arthur Dent, you can never get the hang of Thursdays. Maybe you have a huge work assignment looming ahead. Maybe that foxy chick or hip guy you’ve been interested isn’t giving you the time of day. Maybe you’re just a little hungover (I can’t blame you). Don’t Panic. Whatever problems big or small are irking you, it’s not like it’s the end of the world…I hope.
Chefs on Drugs | McCon →
It has drugs. It has celebrities (kind of). And it’s written by a major news source. I took my first bump of crystal meth crouched down between two cars in a diner parking lot in upstate New York. I did it because it was offered to me. Because I’d never tried it before. It never even occurred to me to say no. Need I say more?
Second week of posting, and I’ve failed again. FYI, I have been reading War As They Knew it, by Michael Rosenberg, and I’m going to post something worth reading tomorrow after I get home from work and put some more thought into it. In order to add value to this blog, I need to write a serious and thoughtful post, and I’m not ready to write something of that sort at the moment. ...

A Study On Happiness | Torpey →
Not too long ago, I was about six months deep into unemployment, trying to figure out which direction I wanted to take my life. Having just been laid off from a job that had me feeling stressed out and unenthusiastic about the real world, it was finally time for me to review what I could do, both professionally and personally, to get my life on the right track and be “happy”. After all, the last...
7 Types of Ambiguity | Tessa →
7 Types of Ambiguity (a Novel) is a combination page turner and pleasure read. It has thought-provoking circumstances and an insight into mental illness, criminality, and perception.
Welcome to Literate Fools. This site has a very simple angle. The four five of us (McCon, Tessa, Torpey, Schmitt, and Mick) are going to be writing weekly blog posts about books we are reading. We all have vastly different tastes and writing styles, so there should be a little bit of something for everyone. The purpose of all of this is to a) get all four five of us reading again b) get those...
