Onefleshness

I was out-of-town last weekend at a family funeral. Who passed away was my sister-in-law, Shirley. The “in-law” part always feels inaccurate because she was so much more to me.

Greatest EVER?

“…the greatest of all time…”   “The most decorated _______ EVER….”   “We’re seeing history in the making…”   “…has just written their place in the history books…”   “No one has ever…”   “We may never see anything like this again…”   These are phrases that are kicked around a lot by commentators—not just in…
