Before the raging horde of angry comments — I was the one who did this question this fine evening, subbing for our usual band of merry On the Street reporters, and I thought I was being pretty clever.

Today is the first day of spring, after all, and we do have a front page story about allergies, so I thought, why not ask about that? This was a brilliant idea, but I only found out later that we had just run a question about allergies very recently. So I feel pretty silly.

My lesson? I need to read more On The Street.

I turn into a snot factory occasionally during the spring.

I horde around some in my youth . . .

The house is nice and neat but the bunker looks like a hoarder lives there . . .

The Mrs says if I had fired off a snot rocket in our first date there wouldn't have been a second. (One of the "negatives" of growing a mustache)

Roe, one of the positives about having a long beard is that sometimes I find Cheerios caught in it.

I worked for more than 10 years as a baseball and fast pitch softball umpire. Internet commenters, while admittedly snarkier, have nothing on angry parents and coaches.

John's molestache protects him from allergies.

Those elm trees budding out set me off. Claritin Redi-tabs stop it, pretty much.
