“Clinging” to Jim Limber

The latest issue of North and South has a hilarious little story about Jim Limber and the Davis family written by Chuck Lyons. Check out some of these references

“Jim was soon treated as a part of the Davis family, a precious part.”

“Joe’ s death led the Davises’ to cling strongly to little Jim.”

Wonderful stuff Chuck – whoever you are.

    Exactly what kind of deeply-buried psychological ego are guys like that trying to stroke by writing stuff like that? Seriously, that kind of language makes Jim Limber sound like a pet dog. Is that really necessary?
