No offense to "His Holiness"...but I wonder if the Gwinnett Gladiators are going to lose a home date because of this...

Considering the season doesn't start until mid October, I doubt the Gladiators have much to worry about. I've heard him speak. He is a good speaker.

I was being facetious, LilburnsFuture. I'm among the group that is unhappy with Arena Management for not allowing their longest-serving tenant home playoff dates, hence my comment. I know the season doesn't start until the third week or so of October.

And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Hmmm. Should be an interesting topic to discuss - secular "ethnics" in education or "ethics" in education? Freudian slip perhaps?

Good catch but simply demonstrates that GDP proof readers are human or don't exist.
