The green canopies of the Fourth Coast Cafe jut out from the old brick building near the corner of Vine street and Westnedge avenue in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The only twenty-four hour cafe in the city and, as far as I know, in the state is a social hub for a community of college students, alumni, free thinkers, and everyone else. It's a shining beacon of warmth and caffeine in even the darkest and coldest nights. The side door might be closed in the winter, but the front door is never locked.
As I enter through the glass door, the scent of coffee mingles with the smell of the street and the smoke of a couple on the sidewalk talking about politics, philosophy, and the latest additions to their record collections. To the right of the stairway, which leads up to the Crow's Nest restaurant, is another glass door which swings into the cafe. My ears are treated to snippets of conversations ranging from chess moves to stories of drunken debauchery. To my left, a barista turns on an industrial sized coffee grinder as another presses levers on a well used espresso machine, eliciting a low hiss as espresso fills a tiny metal cup. The place smells of old art, new coffee, fresh tea, and human energy. This coffee shop is where people come to meet with old friends and new minds. This is where they come to plan, and at times even create, new works of poetry, drawings, novels, and everything else which breaths life into life. This place is the living breath of Kalamazoo.
I add a little sugar to my drink and fall in love with the dull clank of the spoon against the thick walls of the tall glass cups the cafe uses. I look around and see that my usual table, in the center of the room, is taken, so I make my way to the bar stools and take a seat there. The chairs are surprisingly comfortable for being simple wooden seats. It's clear that the cafe knows well that people come here to stay for long periods at a time.

On this episode of In Life Now, Dr. Evans-Barton is going to engage us in "girl talk!"
Ladies this show is dedicated to Y-O-U so get sit back, get comfortable, and get in on the conversation...
About Dr. Torri J. Evans-Barton:
"A transplant from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Torri J. Evans-Barton currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia where she is the Founder & CEO of The Fatherless Generation Foundation. Growing up in a single parent household, Torri faced many adversities adding tremendous devastation to her life emphasizing the fact she needed her father.
This burden burning on the inside of Torri J. Evans-Barton caused her to realize there were others who are growing up fatherless just like her who desire reconciliation with their absent father. Her desire has now turned into a full time mission of “healing the broken places the fatherless experience has created” through her nonprofit, The Fatherless Generation Foundation Inc. Launched in 2009, TFGF is a non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia reuniting fathers and their children by providing the resources and services that strengthen, support, and elevate the commitment to fatherhood and family values. Their services include Husband & Wife Team Mentor Teams, Peer Groups hosted in The Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 10 cities, Tutoring, but at the helm of the organization is Commitment to Fatherhood Program; the mediation process taking place reuniting biological fathers back into the lives of their children!"

Elvis Found Alive
Legendary 76-year-old rock ‘n roller Elvis Presley is alive and well, and he’s ready to make his comeback. According to a new documentary, Elvis Found Alive (directed and produced by Joel Gilbert, also responsible forPaul McCartney Really Is Dead), not only is Elvis alive, he’s waiting for Barack Obama to leave office before he shows his face in public and picks up his music career where he left off. You see, Barack Obama, Captain Nazi, and their minions would like to shut Elvis down–permanently.
There were two major influences on Elvis’ life…his mama and…Captain Marvel Jr.???
But wait! There’s more! According to the very same documentary, Elvis and Captain Marvel Jr. have led amazingly parallel lives–right down to faking their own deaths for the sake of their (mutual) country. Because Elvis is still in danger (don’t forget, he was placed in Kalamazoo by the Witness Protection Program because of his daring work as a DEA agent–and that’s not Dead Entertainers Association), he chose to appear before cameras in silhouette.
