'Unspoken requests' ...
For my brother, for his sisters and myself; and for a friend's dad and my friend. Health-related. Life-related.
For folks educated way past their raisin' ... "Praecipitatum verius quam editum" --- By the Woulda-been Poet Lariat of the Shoulda-Been State of Sequoyah.
A Yankee editor friend called me an "erudite redneck." That about sums it up. WHAT I'M READING ..... GORE VIDAL, "Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace: How We Got to Be So Hated" (New York: Thunder's Mouth, 2002). NIKOS KAZANTZAKIS, "The Last Temptation of Christ" (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960).
