interesting links come my way

My buddy Dr. Steve sends me disturbing news: Disney has bought out the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas for $4 billion, and will put out a new Star Wars movie in 2015. In his email, Steve asks me: "What's your guess as to the storyline?" I have no damn clue. All I can say is that Lucas had better not be the director or scriptwriter; both of those jobs can be ably filled by Lawrence Kasdan, a superb writer/director.

My brother Sean, meanwhile, links to a hilarious video of an exorcism, but this one comes with a twist: the demon being exorcized is gay.

A link I found in a completely random way: Georgetown University's Dr. Charles E. King writes an essay titled "How to Think." I might photocopy this for some of my students.

Sandy and Grover.

Blogger friend John McCrarey sends me this YouTube link: Real Aquaplaning.
