Parade Magazine

I don't know why I always look at the Walter Scott Question and Answer section on the inside cover of this magazine (which is shoved into the sunday paper). The questions that ask for research answers seem silly. I mean, would you write to a magazine for an answer knowing (1) the chances of your question being selected are remote and (2) you'll have to wait at least three months for the answer and (3) there is something called the Internet? For example, this week there was this question from Tad North of Chattanooga, TN: "After the rap group Three 6 Mafia won an Oscar for the song 'It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp', I heard people talking about their 'grilles'. What does that mean?" You can't figure that out on your own? And, Tad, it's grillz, bruther.
