M'g GloriesMorning glories always seem to be at their finest just before the first frost...and the air feels as if the first frost is on its way soon.


I am still in Maine and had planned to head south tomorrow, but my big much-loved and much-hated Viking range has given out (I had to take an uncooked meat loaf to a friend's oven the other day) and tomorrow is the first day that Matt, Mr. Viking-fixit, could come.  So I will get the car all packed and hope that he'll be here and gone in time for me to get to Cambridge before dark.  If not, I will have to leave first thing Saturday morning.

Important that I get down there because I am invited to a skybox evening at Fenway Park on Saturday!

Amazing the number of papers accumulated over the summer, which I am packing into bags to take home.  Not newspapers. Mail, and manuscripts, and calendars, and, and....

A magazine called The American Theater has a nice article about the upcoming productions of GOSSAMER, and I am beginning to get requests from other theaters who would like to take a look at the script.

Speaking of which (the script), things are still in progress until the curtain actually goes up. Yesterday I got a request from the director to make some slight changes in one scene, which I was happy to do. Well, maybe happy is the wrong word. Willing to do. And he said that one actor, playing an abusive man, felt that perhaps his line "Stupid broad!"....directed at his intimidated wife....was dated, and could I come up with something more contemporary?  I did, but it was obscene and made the theater director snort coffee out of his nose when he read it in my email.  So they are on their own and I'll see in Milwaukee on September 19th and 20th what they came up with.  Please feel free to send suggestions, but remember that it is a family show appropriate for 10-and-up so the obvious can't be used, and causes coffee-snorting.

I just re-read Berit Kjos review of your dystopian book THE GIVER. Now that we have Communitarian Obama running things completely into the ground I wonder if folks will see the parallels in your book to what is planned for America? Why DID you write such a horror story for children? What was your purpose?

Vita Vea, Washington: A freakish athlete,NFL Jerseys Vea actually played as a 350-pound edge rusher at times two years ago due to the team's injuries at the position. He can stand up double-teams and attack ball carriers.NFL Cheap Sports Jerseys Being part of a rotation at the next level will help him stay fresh, maximizing his talents. Maurice Hurst, Michigan: A quick first step makes Hurst the most dangerous penetrator in this group.Adidas NHL Jersey He plays strong for his size (6-foot-1, 292 pounds), as well. He was diagnosed with a heart condition at the NFL Scouting Combine, Adidas NBA Swingman Jersey but was later cleared by doctors to participate in Michigan's pro day and was not asked to return for the combine medical recheck, which was a good sign. Da'Ron Payne, Alabama: Payne's disruptive play in the College Football Playoff gave him a boost heading into the draft process. Stitched NCAA Hockey Jersey He
demonstrated that quickness all season, though, and at the combine, too. CFL Jersey Teams seeking a nose tackle with quickness to challenge gaps on a consistent basis will look his
way early in the draft.Taven Bryan, Florida: Bryan was not the most productive player during his time at Florida,Flex Base Baseball Jersey especially in his first two years. However, his natural ability is evident, as is his motor. At 6-5, 291 pounds, Soccer Club Jersey Bryan might fit best as a five-technique. Harrison Phillips, Stanford: Phillips is a strong defender who's difficult to move.Women Jersey His agility and nose for the ball in traffic are exemplary; it's rare for a tackle to lead his team in tackles, as Phillips did last season with 103 stops, even if two-thirds of the tackles were assists.

ESPN's Dan Le Betard conducted a stinging interview with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Wednesday,
grilling los angeles angels of anaheim jersers the commissioner on the details of the Miami Marlins sale to a group led by Derek Jeter. The conversation was contentious from the start, with Le Betard saying, "Baseball has been really bad to South Florida for many years, and I don't believe baseball deserves a single customer in South Florida," just moments before introducing the commissioner. It only got more heated from there. Le Betard bluntly asked whether or not Manfred knew of Jeter's plan to cleveland indians jersers slash the Marlins' payroll. Manfred denied having knowledge of any of Jeter's specific plans for the group while going through the approval process. "We are starting with a chicago white sox jersers lie, Rob," washington nationals jersers Le Batard said. "That's where we're starting." Manfred continued to insist that decisions such as the miami marlins jersers ones Jeter has made to cut the Marlins' budget were made at a local level, independent of his purview as commissioner. "We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that we approve in the ownership process." On Thursday, Le Batard said during his show that he had seen the "Project Wolverine" boston red sox jersers proposal Jeter's group washington nationals jersers put together for MLB and knew the commissioner was not being truthful.

This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million.
