<about wood coin>
A puzzle of wordplay and solemnity with literary and figurative edges. To put it together please consider the measure and pith of each piece.

ON HEADS: With its debut in 2008 Wood Coin flagged issues that, god help us, the media has since spread. Over the years Wood Coin also made men horny, or made people feel love; some readers dented shells coming out about whatever.
ON TAILS: Though the seminal issue of Wood Coin scored highly, art and philosophy are clinging to the drain in 'America'... Corporate predators use the media to program society against political free-thinking, and their victims usually are ignorant or quiet.<
ON RIMS: As Wood Coin, or any coin, flips, a controversy might arise over it being a disc or a sphere; equality in weight distribution keeps us watching. Fortunately physics, even in our supernatural dreams, as we take our exams, keeps the world in motion.
WARNING: Flip At Own Risk!
