“We’re Praying for Y’all”

Typically on Thursday mornings, we would post a new Twanglish Lesson, giving you tongue-in-cheek instruction in learning to speak Southern. This Thursday morning, however, is no time for joking. Our beloved South was battered by storms over the last couple of days, resulting in unimaginable damage and loss of life. In the coming days and […]

Meet the RSM: Billy Ivey

We may have already launched the site, but that doesn’t mean you’ve met all our contributors just yet. Take for example, Billy Ivey. Billy is a writer we’ve long admired for his timing, rhythm, well-constructed sentences and sometimes silly, sometimes absurd observations on the human condition. (Heck, he’s like RSM Wayne Franklin’s¬†doppelwriter.) We don’t have […]
