George Bush was a Cheerleader (Seriously)

According to the folks at, George W. was not only a cheerleader, he was the head cheerleader at Phillips Academy, a prep school in Andover, Massachusetts.  Read more weird facts about U.S. Presidents in’s article 12 Things You Didn’t Know About U.S. Presidents, including this one:

The 18th U.S. president, Ulysses S. Grant was born Hiram Ulysses Grant, but he changed his name because he did not like his monogram, HUG.

I guess cuddly is not the image a United States President wants to project.

Stephen King, Werewolves, and a Literary Meem

Grab the book closest to you.  Turn to page 31.  Count down to the eighth sentence.  Write down the next 5 lines (keep writing into the  next line, if needed, until you finish the last sentence). 

“Later, no one will be able to say where the sound came from; it was everywhere and nowhere as the full moon painted the darkened houses of the village, everywhere and nowhere as the March wind began to rise and moan like a dead Berserker winding his horn, it drifted on the wind, lonely and savage.”

That was from Stephen King’s Cycle of the Werewolf.  This is a great book full of short stories about werewolves; I highly recommend it.
