Charles Dickens once famously (though somewhat paradoxically) wrote: “It was the best of times and the worst of times…” This week, we present to our readers (who, in any case, who haven’t gone out people on vacation or business) asked some of your best and worst.
That’s right, with summer coming to an end, we thought it might be a good time to check out the advice (and warnings) for books, movies, and even music.
