The word Vice has many meanings. For some of us, these magic pictures that appear before our eyes may be it. For others, that drag on a cigarette in the morning when you first wake up or that cup of joe from Starbucks. Whatever it is, it’s got a hold on you like the vice on granddads workbench gripping that lawnmower blade as he sharpens it. Lets see how some of our readers interpret the word.
