My irritating and unsightly rash is spreading and the itch is worsening. I have a tube of cortisone ointment, but it expired yesterday ("EXP 03 031 2013"). My pharmacist retired on approximately the same date (when the restraining order went into effect). My question is: Should I continue using steel wool without the ointment?

The Krampus is hysterical (now). But to really scare children, make them watch the 1959 Mexican film, "Santa Clause."

I own this on DVD, and it makes for freaky adult viewing all year.

I appreciate bad reviews, but some reviewers are unnecessarily cruel -- seemingly more interested in demonstrating their own cleverness than saying much worthwhile.
