Another week has gone by quickly here in the sunny South. Softball season is over and there are just a few days left in the school year. The students are starting to catch a little bit of spring fever, as are some of the teachers. In three weeks, Jan and I will be welcoming an addition to our family. Josh is getting married! It's hard to believe that we're old enough to have a son who is old enough to be getting married.:) I've heard it said that famous people die in threes. This week, if my count is correct, there were five deaths of folks who were famous for one reason or another. I don't know, maybe it's another case of inflation. Anyway, here are the links of the week:

Good essay from Penny Carothers.
