Quotable Quote

"I think people who get in trouble should have to sand drywall as a punishment. A lucky few might discover they have an aptitude for it, and come out of the experience with a marketable skill. The rest would discover the fifth circle of hell is no place to be. Both groups, therefore, might give up their life of crime" -- Publisher Trish Gannon of the River Journal/Clark Fork, who is hanging drywall as we speak.

Question: I've never hung drywall. But I have dug 2 feet of concrete out of fence post holes. Which is nasty business, too. What is the nastiest work that you've done, paid or unpaid, in the last year?
