Reviews . . .
"Whether it's a conversation with arm chair philosopher Babs Spelnek, introspection on life's challenges or commentary on the every-day, Lou Ann Thomas says it in engaging style. In a medium that must deal with the world's harsh realities, her well-developed sense of humor is welcome relief to newspaper readers."
--Steve Swartz, Metro Editor, The Topeka Capital-Journal

"Writing good commentaries for radio is tricky business.  Lots of people THINK they can do it, but few can do it well.  Lou Ann's commentaries fit the bill, and help remind us that life is really just a series of small interconnected events--some are good, some are bad, many are funny."
--J. Schafer, News Director, Kansas Public Radio, Lawrence, Kansas
"Someone famous once said that life is like a bowl of cherries, but you have to watch out for the pits.  While there are pitfalls and problems in everyone's life, Lou Ann handles every situation with a passion for life and a sense of humor that is guaranteed to tickle any funny bone you have. Read on and you will have to agree."
--Elizabeth Bower, Advertising Publications Editor,  The Wichita Eagle's Active Life
