Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

The Auburn Creed
Occasionally, I just like to read this. I know I may write like I'm a big raving Auburn fan--most of that is just for entertaiment value--I liked going to school there, but like any other place, it has its bad parts, too. I never really got into the pageantry and social stuff while I was there, and even today, about the most I do is wear the occasional logo shirt or cap. Again, despite a lot of the silly stuff I post, that experience is just another part of my life which fairly well bulges with other parts jockeying for priority.
But, I still like to read this--it was written in a time when people actually wrote things like this, and believed in them, and tried to live up to the ideals in them.
I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.
-George Petrie (1945)
