Things I did not know
Today is Robert E. Lee day, a holiday in Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi. I guess that this is a day for reflection that a series of successes can lead to a feeling that you can accomplish anything. Great talent and a string of successes are no guarantee of future success, and that a dash of humility is a great tonic to the soul - and can help us resist the urge to order General Pickett to charge the Yankees on yon ridge, across that empty field.
