I wish Storyville (as a whole) had been in this list.  It's my big favorite.  Every one of those has been helpful.

Yeah, we kind of based this list on what was really popular and/or got a lot of comments. But a poll on Favorite Column Series is a good idea.

I don't know how I originally missed Top 10 Words That Need to Die Immediately - but that's my vote. Rarely do I find something that I agree 100% wholeheartedly with. I may or may not be known amongst my friends to go off on tirades about the overuse of "Epic" (as in, your regular fucking night at the bar and getting home at the reasonable hour of 2:30 am on a Saturday night is hardly epic - Pedestrian - is the right term) and I've been told I need to relax. Bullshit. Fuck these words.
