MARK HUGHES COBB: When work makes you lose your cool - Thu, 04 Jul 2019
Tuesday people poured out of our building, carrying boxes and other heavy objects.As anyone alive in the Internet age knows, this lend a somewhat ominous tone.But this time, it was just the AC dying out.Whew.I mean, whew with a flappy hand wringing sweat from the brow thing.If Wednesday's paper dripped like a Dali, now you know why: It's because we all suffered heatstroke and thus weren't tippy-top of our game.

MARK HUGHES COBB: These cliches need to go - Thu, 11 Jul 2019
I'm ready to make someone else die on that hill, if it'll kill off the cliche.We've all got trigger words and phrases. When I asked Facebook friends about theirs, the brush fire burned up to 230 comments, thus far. And it's still live.I started with: "Calm down." Related variations include "Don't be so dramatic." All vain attempts from people trying to quash feelings? It's like they've never met humans. In the history of the universe, such bleating has never [...]
