Daily Word Candy

Have you ever read "Mrs. Kelly's Monster" by Jon Franklin? If you answered "no" to that question, I command you to immediately click on this link and read the piece. "Mrs. Kelly's Monster" is the first real feature article that I recall reading, and it changed my life, in regards to my love for feature articles. It won the Pulitzer Prize in 1979. It is a flawless, immaculate, engaging story about the struggle between a doctor and a "monster" and poor Mrs. Kelly, the victim caught in the "monster's" tentacles.

God, it's good.
