The End of a Long Week

Well, the world spins on, or as Peggy Noonan noted in the WSJ OpinionJournal, "...a slow week in a hot era."

First I would like to refer you to Kathleen Parker's eloquent epitath for Doug Marlette in
He felt it was the artist's assignment to find out -- "to snare the spirits of mankind in nets of magic," as Wolfe put it.
I would also like to acknowledge the gracious comments on the last post. Two of the posters, Gary & Sandi, figured large in our shared story...not only did Gary actually (and insanely) hire both Marlette and I for the Florida Flambeau, but during those college years they fed us both more than once.

I have to write things down to feel I fully comprehend them.
