I am also a T.E. Lawrence freak, a Poe freak, a Sherlock Holmes freak, and a Herman Melville freak, but Lincoln is the coolest. I once lost an entire 7th grade on a Friday afternoon while practice teaching. My secret fantasy is to write for MAD magazine, which I have used as a major news source in the past. They were the first to report Al Haig's resignation. I drove a VW beetle for 15 years until I burned out the distributor wires and blew a rod through the engine. I am now driving a VW Golf.
