The Most Functional Word in the English Language

Passed on by a friend with my apologies in advance: Well, it’s shit… That’s right, shit! Shit may just be the most functional word in the English language.

The Passing of a Great Man

It was with a heavy heart that I boarded a plane for Los Angeles to attend a funeral for Bob, the former scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 108. The event brought a convocation of ex-scouts from up and down the West coast, and said much about our age. Bob, 85, called me two weeks ago […]
