    This person is a free-thinker. He currently is unemployed and looking for a job in the planning sector that makes a lot of money and doesn't just have typical 9-5 office hours spent in a cubicle. After all, this person thinks outside the box and didn't go to grad school just to be a cubicle slave.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    "Jim" and "Judy" will be featured on the next episode of "Hoarders". They hoard wildly colored paints and paper decorations. Viewers can see that their lone garbage can is never used.

    Their daughters became concerned when they ordered hundreds of boxes of copy paper at a time.
