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.

Just got an interesting search hit...
...from someone looking for information about Samuel Ullman.
Ullman, a German immigrant who wound up in Birmingham in 1884, served on the first city school board and as a lay rabbi at Temple Emanu-El, in addition to working as a shopkeeper. In his retirement, he wrote a poem called "Youth", a framed copy of which hung in Douglas MacArthur's office in Tokyo during the Occupation. The poem, though little known in the United States, struck a chord with the Japanese and became, and remains, very popular.
