Moron Police: Those of us in the Madison area have the pleasure of Chris Rickert who's our own terrible local columnist.
TuteTibiImperes: That did come off as a weird stream combo of stream of consciousness writing combined with copious name dropping and deliberately floral prose, but it also had this gem:FTFA: It appears as though the U.S. Post Office on East Gay Street in West Chester is constructed of Cockeysville marbleMaybe it's juvenile, but I giggled about that.

BokChoy: Link doesn't appear to be farked but heres the full text for anyone who cant see it:Just a random thought or two while standing at the crosswalk in the 200 block of West Market Street in front of the Chester County Justice Center, watching motorists blithely violate the "yield to pedestrians" warnings on their way to whatever circle of hell is reserved for them.By now, pretty much everyone and his or her dog knows how the tiny borough of West Chester has a firm historical connection to the great capital of Washington, D.C., and that this is not because my friend Jamie McVickar and I have shared a beer or two in both locations.No, the one connect that most are aware of is the fact that the fellow who designed the Historic Chester County Courthouse is one Thomas U.

Your ability to ask him that question could put a slight damper on your getting back to us with the answer, make no mistake about it.)But recently I learned of another architectural link between the Washington D.C. Mall and West Chester, one I haven' quite had the chance to share with people I run into yet, mostly because I am too busy answering their questions about my upcoming appearance with soap opera star Susan Lucci on the program "Deadly Affairs" - an appearance that I can assure you has nothing to do with the 1887 death, or life, of Thomas Ustick Walter.It appears as though the U.S. Post Office on East Gay Street in West Chester is constructe ...

rkiller1: Anyone recognize this fellow Farker?
BarkingUnicorn: Perhaps Cockeysville marble can stop the trafficI didn't get any further. Must rush off and corner the Cockeysville marble market before the next big DDoS attack!
fortunesmith: Overly-excessive use of the word 'that'. If the sentence you write/type sounds good without 'that', don't use it. Farkin' amateurs...
