Toomer's Corner's Trees Poisoned

There is too much hatred in sports and in life, as I said before in a post here. The same people who give you winning at all costs in football games, now give you terrorism. It's all one and the same. Either people have humanity and values or they don't.

I seem to have a talent for predicting catastrophe. Every time we went by those trees I pondered the fact that no one had bothered to poison them. They seemed so unprotected to be so important to us. It seemed like perhaps I was wrong about humanity. Perhaps people were basically good and there was no need to worry. (As I thought "Perhaps these investment banks are right about our economy." Before the crash.)

It is a solemn and sad day in Auburn.
