When I was in first grade Stanley Elementary School held a spirit week.
King Solomon and the Byrds once famously wrote, “To everything there is a season.”
I never knew the gravity of my work until I made my first mistake. I can’t remember if it was my old editor, Chuck Kurtz, or my old publisher, David Specht, that told me this piece of advice. I don’t remember it word for word, but it went something like this:
I like to think of myself as a Renaissance Man and it’s not just because I occasionally dress as my alter-ego, the brave knight Sir Sits-a-Lot and go to festivals. I’m a Renaissance Man because I have a passion for many different things, chief among them sports and politics. Whenever possible, I like to combine the two, and election night provided the perfect opportunity to do just that.
