(Feb/March Zephyr) Take it or Leave it: IN DEFENSE OF ‘WELFARE BUMS’ & ‘LAZY LOAFERS’…by Jim Stiles

She always spoke with her hand over her mouth—her ex-husband had a habit of showing up on weekends, drunk and violent, and whatever frustrations he was experiencing in life, he took them out on Mary. One night, he knocked out all of her upper front teeth. She couldn’t smile, even on those rare occasions when she wanted to.
