Some days, it seems like that interview took place just yesterday.

I love button-down shirts, I always have.

Fashion trends are ever changing, one minute, shirts have wide lapels with enough wing area to provide some lift, the next they are sporting the band collar with no lapels at all.

Classic mystery novels usually open with a set of unexplained occurrences that pique the curiosity of the protagonist.

The clues frequently, but not always, lead to a malicious event that leaves only the disconnected evidence available for identifying the perpetrator.
