Just A Thought -

The Heisman Pundit had a Thought -just how much of a tragedy do you need to have till ESPN shows up on your campus ad nauseum? I'm with the Pundit on this one. The family and friends of the victims at NYU are hurting no less than the family and friends of the VT victims did, yet you don't get that kind of outpouring of support from ESPN. Better yet, let's have ESPN stick to what it used to do best...SPORTS!!!!

Book Meme

In response to SagaciousHillbilly: Sagacious Hillbilly (who certainly is both), I bring you what I call the Book Meme.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the closest book of 123 pages or more
(No cheating.)
2. Find page 123
3. Find the first five sentences
4. Post the next three sentences

Miller, D.L.; Hatfield,S.; and Norman, G. (2005). An American Vein: Critical Readings in Appalachia. Ohio University Press: Athens, OH.
In this extremely complex work, the device succeeds in providing a dramatic and objective focus to what otherwise might have devolved into an opaque interior monologue. Hannah, younger than Settle and more unsure of herself, wins the sympathy and interest of the reader as shes searches for and finally discovers the answer to the questions that have inspired the writing of both cycles. If Hannah is a fictional construct as Rosenberg maintains, she is also an autobiographical construct. In this work fiction and autobiography merge in a unique way.

When the Beulah Quintet and the Canona Cycle are considered together, as The Killing Ground demands that they must be, Settle's accomplishment becomes even more awesome.

Bob's House -- Pepsi's new Super Bowl Ad

This was my favorite Super Bowl ad, even though it didn't make it on during the actual game.

The last Christmas present

What do you get someone when you know it will be the last gift you ever give him? That was the question I had to deal with last Christmas. My honey’s Pop wasn’t doing well and we all knew that this would be the last Christmas together. So what should I get him? A memento probably wouldn’t be good, and, as my honey pointed out, this just wasn’t the time to get him a savings bond. So after much consternation, I settled on a box of sugar free chocolates, which he loved. At the last minute, I found a lovely group pic of my honey’s pop, his 2 sisters, his stepmom, his brother-in-law and, of course, my honey and me. I printed out the picture and put it in a frame for the present.

That picture sat by his chair and later his hospital bed. Last week, the picture was in his casket as we said our last goodbyes. I think the present was OK in the end, but not nearly as good as the one he gave me.

Rest in peace, Pop. And thank you for the greatest gift I’ve ever gotten: your wonderful son.
