A collection of columns and editorial cartoons by Craig A. Marks of the West Side Leader and South Side News Leader (Akron, Ohio). Craig has been providing a humorous slant on the goings-on in Northeast Ohio — and his personal life — for more than 20 years, with columns and cartoons about everyone from LeBron James to his parent's Karaoke-singing feline, Oliver. Among the 97 columns included in this collection: "A fiscal cautionary tale," "Catching up on old haunts" (laments of the Phantom of the Civic Theatre), "To boldly go where no coloring book has gone before" (how Mr. Spock ended up dressed like a pirate), "Snow job, completed" (Old Man Winter's exit interview), "Express discontent" (a polarizing "Polar Express" revision), "Off to find the lizard" (a search for a daughter's stuffed reptile), "The road ahead" (a look at the Copley-Fairlawn Wal-Mart battle), "WAKC unplugged" and "How to hook an Indians fan."
