Inspiring words... let's hope they hold true in the era of high-speed internet and XBox.

W. Whitman Jr.

Do I hear America singing all those varied carols? Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else? Well, as night follows the day, it's pretty dark out now. The new day hasn't dawned yet, and the roosters ain't crowin'; it's just the chickens come home to roost. But, hey, I'm all for melodious songs and musicians still to come... for new hope and some happier songs of ourselves. All will be fine in Ought-Bama Nine.
