Yell like furies

Union Soldier

Probably not the right quote for a Union soldier, but I thought it shed insight on the Civil War:

I hate the idea of causes, and if I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.

— E. M. Forster

P.S. My friend and I were talking about the Civil War this week at work. He suggested a word balloon that I remember being funny at the time but has since escaped me.

P.P.S. Who’s to say Union soldiers didn’t yell like furies too? Besides historians, I mean.

Jiu Jitsu

My pal Patrick is learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It sounds fun, but I’m not sure I could muster up the courage to try it myself. Maybe he’ll train me by phone.
