Uh, what is fiberous soil?  Is my garden going to start demanding 
Metamucil or one of those other sort of additives?  


I saw on the cover of one of those Star-World-Enquirer type 
magazines headlines about Dolly Parton's face falling.  "Amazing" I 
shouted to the clerk, a very nice woman of questionable taste who 
thinks I'm witty.  She couldn't understand why I thought it was an 
amazing cover.  "Think about it.  With her build isn't it amazing 
they are talking about her face sagging?"  Such is life.
