    I'll bet it won't take long for him to become more accustomed to speaking at press conferences. It must be quite intimidating at first. He seems like a nice enough kid. Someday this vid will be shown at a friar's roast of him after his 11th season in the NFL, and he'll laugh along with everyone.

    this is from a luncheon that a guy i know attended at Penn State regarding how we young ones write.

    Guy from PSU dept. of English said there is no solid evidence that writing is worse, and very, very, VERY few instances of text style stuff making it into college student writing.

    In fact, he said that using social media has made writing better for two reasons:

    - They have to write for a specific audience, something they never really did much before

    - They are writing now more than ever before

    Faculty at Penn State who have a course blog report student writing improves immensely over the course of the semester. This is especially true if it is an open blog, meaning the public can view it.

    No, no!

    She's just a good judge of character! :)

    (of course, if she was that good, why'd she marry me?)
