Thinking outside the box for city savings I have two ideas. First, the entire city should go on a mandatory 9/80 work schedule. Of course, not the safety employees, but everyone else. Close all the offices. The citizens may not like it at first, but if the City Council sticks to their guns, the citizens will get used to it. Second, estimate the water and power bill every other month, but continue to bill every month. You just need to adjust the “high/low” factor with the units used by the meter readers.

So, is it "each other" or "one another"? A user on a writers' message board has sought out the expertise of her colleagues on how to choose between these two phrases. And she gets her answer. "Each other," a pretty savvy fellow message board user tells her, is for relationships between just two people. "One another" is for relationships between three or more. It's handy. It's dandy. It's logical. And in the questioner's mind, it's now the official law of the land. Will the user who posted the question go on to share her newfound wisdom with others?

C ity officials in Roswell, N.M., want to establish a UFO-themed amusement park, given the area's history — some believe a UFO crashed in the area. Do you believe in UFOs and alien life? At this point in the 21st century, I personally do not believe that we have ever been visited by alien civilizations or UFOs. However, I am also a fan of the late Carl Sagan, who said there were billions and billions of stars and planets out there, so I do believe that there could be life as we know it, or even life as we don't know it, on some distant planet, or even planets.
