Diamonds In The Rough – Part IX

This is the ninth edition of Diamonds In The Rough, the Special Feature that gives newer visitors to the GMC the chance to Diamonds-logo-bluesee some of our favorite posts from the past. Come to think of it, our regulars might want to take another look at these too. Sometimes things are just as much fun the second time around.

Of course, some of those same regulars have probably noticed that the series has progressed by date — it other words, we’ve gradually worked our way from posts that first appeared in 2006 to those below, which were published in 2012 and early 2013. That means we’re getting so close to current posts that we might not do these quite as often. But I think this one still works pretty well.
