Persistence and being delightfully shocked by a miracle

Persistence and being delightfully shocked by a miracle

In honor of Super Bowl, and the greatest commercial of all time, I give you a sixty second reflection for today.  Can we think as big as this kid?  Can we get on our all-powerful outfit and go conquer the world and never ever ever give up?

According to the journalist Frida Ghitis, Col. P fell prey to a form of temporary insanity caused by the interaction of arrogance and libido. (Which, by the way, the French see as no big deal.)
