Darts & Laurels

We're starving. The thought of eating another meal out of a box, bag or can is enough to make out stomachs turn. So we're holding out for the gluttonous pleasure that is epitomized in the Thanksgiving meal.

Nothing wrong with fishing T-shirts

In Monday's "Fashion" Alligator Rants, "frat guys who wear Guy Harvey shirts" were chastised for wearing the artists's apparel simply because "Gainesville doesn't have any good places to fish for swordfish."
