buenosHey Buenos,  I've been in a musical rut lately and I'm embarrassed to say who's been plaguing my playlists but I'll just say that I've taken Michael Jackson's death about as far as I can go.  Between that and Justin Timberlake, I need to come up with something else.  What do you listen to, Buenos?

Mostly I'm stuck listeni

buenosheadshot01.jpgHi Buenos!  Long time reader, first time questioner.  I recently lost a loved one after a long battle with leukemia.  They fought very hard for a very long time and unfortunately the disease took its course.  In passing, however, it was revealed to my brother and I that our deceased friend had very deep pockets and he lef

buenosheadshot01.jpgHi Buenos, I have two questions for you.  1) My hair looks best spiky, but no guys are wearing spiky hair anymore.  (Well, except for Chelsea gays, but I am much more interesting than them.)  What are the hip new hairstyles for men this summer?  2) How many times should I leave voice-mails on a for

buenosheadshot01.jpgBuenos, do you have any thoughts on the current Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor?  I've heard a great deal about "identity politics" and how she's a "reverse racist" and stuff like that but I don't know that much about her.  I'd love to hear your even-tempered opinion on the subject, especially since you are a

buenosheadshot01.jpgHey Buenos, I've got a pretty serious problem.  I think my girlfriend is cheating on me.  It's driving me crazy and I can't stand the thought of her with another guy.  The worst part is I'm not sure if she is or isn't.  My buddy told me he saw her at this one bar sitting on another guy's lap and r

buenosheadshot01.jpgAs you may have heard, there's all this talk in the news about Swine Flu and I'm nervous to eat anything pig-based.  I already don't eat cow or any type of bird for fear of Mad Cow Disease or Avian Flu and now I'm gonna have to give up pork chops and bacon too?  This isn't even to mention my depart

buenosDear Mr. Buenos, I live a blessed life in the little hamlet of Sioux City, Iowa with my wonderful wife and my two beautiful children.  I have a decent job selling car insurance and a network of supportive friends who know me very well.  Why would I have any reason to be depressed, right?  Well even with all that my Father God has given me I still have found myself feeling the terrible weight of depression for weeks now.  I've been having trouble sleeping, thinking about the drudgery of my existence.  I've been loosing weight at an alarming speed and just recently I wasn't able to make love to my wife.  It hurt her feelings terribly and I'm afraid my depression might become contagious to her if I can't give her the love and support that she needs.  Why would God put me through this?  I have to confess that I question His existence now that I'm in this terrible funk.  Do you have any words of support for people out there having their faith questioned? - Downer Steve
