Dear Jim, Wish I could tell you this in person! Last March, I told you about a truck project that provided a hands-on learning experience from the ESM automotive service program we have at my HS. After I showed you pictures of the truck in progress and told you what it...

Larry's Market Boys could not help but get involved in the dark underworld of gambling. Jimbo and I were no exception. I would supplement my College drinking budget by circulating football betting tickets around campus, covering all the action myself. They were the sta...
