"Somewhere the hurting must stop ...
I am not a dreamer... But I believe in miracles. I have to" (October 1979)

-- Terry Fox (1958 -1981)

hard to believe but ... http://www.ottawacitizen.com/sports/Only+Canada+Pity/2562841/story.html

NBC's Today Show's Meredith Vieira reported that a leading candidate to light the Olympic cauldron was Betty Fox, the mother of "Michael" Fox, whose Marathon "for" Hope raised money for cancer research. On the screen appeared a picture of Terry Fox, which was quickly replaced by a picture of Michael J. Fox, which was then just as quickly removed altogether.

Some people just don't prepare properly for their work ...

SEPERATED AT BIRTH? (in dif'rent centuries, of course)

Beethoven, when discussing his 'Moonlight Sonata':

The work was very popular in Beethoven's day, to the point of exasperating the composer, who remarked to Carl Czerny, "Surely I've written better things."

Leonard Cohen, when discussing his 'Hallelujah':

"I think it's a good song, but I think too many people sing it."

Both quotes are taken from Wikipedia

Thanks, Roland. That's one of my very favorites. It is nice to remember when you have doubts.
