on that note, todays the birthday of Howard Cosell who said,
"Arrogant, pompous, obnoxious, vain, cruel, verbose, a showoff. I have been called all of these. Of course, I am."
and the birthday of the author of "Greenleaf,"
"another example of her conviction that a person whose entire life does not reflect an ultimate dependence on the means and workings of grace, is out of touch with God -- and the violence which accompanies the person's realization of his real relationship to God is less a penance than a blessing."
"There won't be any biographies of me, because lives spent between the house and the chicken yard do not make exciting copy."
