So, the wife has been in business for herself going on a year now, and while it's been a success, I have noticed a few changes that have gone along with it. For one thing, there's the whole "She's a Very Important Person" thing I tease her about on occasion – the way her moving and shaking means that she sometimes gets quite offended if I suggest that she could go without her cell phone for a few hours, or that she doesn't really have to check her email during sex.I don't mind, as it's all made her very happy.

Lose the Blues

Happy New Year, everybody! Hopefully, if you made a New Year’s resolution, you haven’t already broken it, although chances are, you probably have by now. Either way, I’m sure nearly everyone is glad to see 2005 go into the history books.As for us, we at Red Shtick Magazine have made a resolution, too. As you probably know, for nearly two years, we’ve been the proverbial Evinrude® in a cesspool. This year, though, we plan to crank up that puppy to the red line!

I Need a Drink After This

I know this is showing my age, but when I was attending LSU, there was a bar in Tigerland called Sports Illustrated (where Reggie’s is today) that was the destination of many classmates on Thursday afternoon. What was so “special” about Thursdays there? Why, it was none other than perhaps the greatest drink “special” ever known to man: “Beat the Clock.”Starting at about 4pm (or whenever it was they opened) on Thursdays, certain drinks would be priced at some ridiculously low price, like around a quarter, as I recall it.

IsnÂ’t His Hair Gray Enough Already?

CNNÂ’s Anderson Cooper has apparently taken it upon himself to keep New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin (and the rest of the cityÂ’s leaders) honest and accountable for the billions of dollars of federal aid that have been pouring in since Hurricane Katrina. Recently, he was back in the Big Easy to follow up on NaginÂ’s progress in fulfilling his promises to rebuild the city and to ensure that the American taxpayersÂ’ money isnÂ’t being squandered.Too bad he couldnÂ’t make a similar visit to the State Capitol during the most recent legislative session.

What the Flock Are They Thinking?

You may not be aware of this, but when we first launched Red Shtick Magazine over two and a half years ago, our premier issue coincided with the Spanish Town Mardi Gras parade. This was not happenstance: We deliberately hurried our launch date so that the first issue came out on the same weekend.

I Feel So Dirty

In case you missed it, we had an election. We voted on secretary of state, insurance commissioner, and thirteen constitutional amendments. There were also some local issues, too.I know you probably had more important things to worry about, like going to the LSU or Southern game, clearing out your email, or cleaning the lint from your navel. In any case, not too many people cared enough to go vote. More specifically, only about 20% of the state’s 2.9 million voters showed up, according to the secretary of state’s office.

If you’re ever in Chicago’s North Side and feel the urge for a cup of joe in a quiet atmosphere, be sure to go to A Taste of Heaven café.

Lee Paige

Our hero this month is a former professional football player who became an agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency. Unlike former Dallas Cowboy Nate Newton, Lee Paige, who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, decided to fight drugs after retirement rather than sell them.Recently, PaigeÂ’s fame as a DEA agent has far surpassed any that he experienced while playing in the NFL.

Scottsdale, AZ City Council

Whenever we at Red Shtick comment on the actions of a political body, typically weÂ’re slamming them for doing something idiotic. In this case, however, weÂ’ve learned about a group of city leaders who have actually done something brave and driven by common sense.

Lorna Jeanne Dudash

This month, weÂ’re highlighting a heroine who shined a light of her own, albeit inadvertently, on the plight of lonely, 40-something women in America. Her desperate actions have garnered the attention of many people, thus revealing the truth about horny, middle-aged MILFs.It all started near Portland, Oregon when a Washington County SheriffÂ’s deputy responded to a noise complaint called in by the neighbors of Lorna Jeanne Dudash. The deputy went to DudashÂ’s residence, knocked on the door, and then left.
