    good stuff
    I haven't been on your site for about 2 1/2 years and I think the essays, stories, etc. are all excellent. Please reply because I want to get your dad's email from you, ok? You're a good writer, Colin. Ruthie

    How Come No One Has Put Mr. Ferm In His Place?
    Warm greetings. I somehow stumbled upon this site and marveled as I read through the numerous bashings Monsieur Ferm has entertained in. I wonder, though, how come none of those which have emailed the dear sir have stood their ground. I also come this beloved critic has come to enjoy putting so harshly down those who take the time to write him. I began to speculate and here is what I have come up with. 1.) Perhaps this dear fellow was abused as a child, feeling too insecure about his own self that he subconsciously decided that he must, for the rest of his life, put on airs of his self-assurance and abuse others through his right of language. 2.) Even though his parents were quite kind and loving to him, poor Colin was the blacksheep, and decided to wreak havoc upon "The Little People" and anyone who dared question his logic. Of course, how could "Lord Ferm" be wrong? He is the pinnacle of the human race, and we are all but peasants for his Lordship to squash without thought. 3.) Mr. Ferm may not be human. I believe I once read about a planet which was inhabited by self-centered beings once, and he has my deepest and sincerest pity if he is among that race. The story did not end well. Au revoir, mes amis! ~Garishlight P.S. If I am not mistaken, which I assure you I am not, Sir Ferm has also made quite a few blunders in his prose himself.

    Still no new stuff????
    I'm stitting in my dorm room in grey, rainy MA, procrastinating rather than working on my thesis, and I remembered this webpage that used to amuse me a whole lot. Colin, what happened to your creativity?? You haven't posted anything in ages. I assume you're either doing really well and are too happy to write or you're just plain too busy. Anyway, hope you're well. Cheers, Inga

    about bonnie scott
    I also went to school with bonnie, I can say for sure bonnie and I were friends, but we unfortunatly have lost touch over the years. The best thing about bonnie is that she never mentioned her father owned [EDITED]. I thought your essay on her was awesome. I just by chance stummbled onto this site, I like the concept. I look forward to reading more in the future and may even add my own. Being a soldier in korea, I've seen things here that would leave anyone with the urge to write.
