how to make it stop.
I'm a sucker for "self-help" articles. I'm also a sucker for organizing and minimalist articles, even though I'm attracted to pictures of what most people would call over-decorated rooms, and at times feel very disorganized.

Is there skullduggery going on in this primary? Of course there is. There always is. Politics and skullduggery have always held hands and skipped down the lane together.
