Good morning, fair readers! Today Harper Burke tells us a little something about killing bunnies:
"We, again, take turns holding the gun to the head of the creature, each closing our eyes and picturing what will happen when our fingers, shaking on the trigger, jerk backwards; what will be achieved. Just as we determined the rifle to be too much force, we wonder if the BB gun would complete our purpose at all. Would a BB, fired point-blank, even kill a baby rabbit? How much force does a BB gun exert? We definitely have no idea."
Read the full tale of bunny suffering here:

Misha Pettman describes love that turns into abuse, then back to love, which cycles back into abuse:

I wrote about the difficulties of counseling troubled students without the proper training. Read and share.

Today, we post a reflection on Sandy Hook by Allyson Wuerth:

I spent Wednesday trolling the ‪#‎InternationalMensDay‬ hashtag on Twitter. If such things interest you, you can read my account here:
Here are some recent news stories about women: In Afghanistan, a 3-year-old girl was snatched from her front yard, where she was playing with friends, and raped in her neighbor's garden by an 18-ye...

A few months ago I discovered that my writing, which I generally publish for free, was potentially plagiarized by someone who gets paid to write for Slate. Did we both just have the same great idea at the same time? Or did something unethical happen?
Christian Exoo and I got together to research and answer this question.

In a mad rush for online content, women and people of color are getting trampled.

If you were wondering how ECU students reacted to the renaming of Aycock  residence hall, I wrote about it:

Misha Pettman shares a story of love and abuse that circles back to love and ends, again, in abuse:

The ravings of a tried pedant. Please don't give me a wedgie, world.
#highered
Academic writing has taken quite a bashing since, well, forever, and that’s not entirely undeserved. Academic writing can be pedantic, jagon-y, solipsistic and self-important. There are endless thi...

A few weeks ago our true story blog published a story about a young boy who murdered his parents after enduring years of abuse. The only problem with that salacious tale is that is was a BIG FAT LIE. In today's follow up post, we explain why we published it in the first place. Read and enjoy!
Editor's note: Today's story is a follow up to "Survival (Part I)," which we published on November 5th of this year. We have requested and received permission to reprint all of the correspondence i...

"And I had the Grandmother Box: a plastic file bin packed with the history of my mother’s mother, hundreds upon hundreds of photos, newspapers clippings, fan letters and bizarre remnants of the life of a woman I don’t remember. My grandmother: the professional wrestler, the author, the songwriter, the model, the airplane enthusiast, the amateur sports fisherwoman, the possible (probable) escort. I would tell you her name, except that I’m not certain of it – the Box contains documents that use half a dozen different names and variations on their spellings, so I just refer to her as Grandmother."

by Melissa Lenos The Box, lined with archival inserts and conscientiously tagged Ziploc bags full of photos, had become something of a party trick. One friend has a hilarious story that becomes mor...
