“In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.”


Mr. Derwood Hunsdale-Talbot’s comments:

My father did the same thing as F. Scott’s Fitzgerald’s protagonist in The Great Gatsby: His advice? Never marry a Mexican girl just for her looks. They have their first baby and boom…get the size of the Hindenburg.

I once woke crying out from a nightmare. My father came to my room. “What’s that wailin’?” he asked.
“Sarah Palin,” I replied through tears.
“Sarah Palin wailin’?” asked dad.
“Sarah Palin wailin’ while sailin’, with her hands on the railin’,” I sobbed.
“Was she balin’?”
“Yes, with her pail in, but she was failin’.”
“No wonder she was wailin’.
Then he held a pillow over my face until I fell back to sleep.
