Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

Success.

a better phrase might be "literally the smallest value above zero, but not all"

i mean, literally the entire point of my post is that kneejerk reactions to one game, especially at the beginning of the season, are dumb as hell for a reason. pointing out that the team was "soft," for example, makes no sense because they obviously weren't since they went on to win every single game after that. all it does is to allow people to look really stupid in retrospect.

And he didn't burn the South to the ground, just a large swath from Atlanta to the sea.

and honestly he didn't even really do that. the mythology around sherman and his march has been so built up over the years by southerners who wanted to portray him as the devil himself that they've forgotten that that's exactly what he wanted them to do in the first place.

he's this eternal boogeyman for many people in the south, and while he has no reason to be, the fact that his face alone pisses off people who are 150 years removed from a society that had to be forced at gunpoint to stop enslaving people means that we are DEFINITELY going to put him on a shirt to mock those same people.

what's funny is that legitimate scholarship on sherman's march has already been changed for decades. it's been painfully obvious for along time that the march to the sea wasnt nearly as destructive as he or generations of future southerners would leave people to believe. but it's taken a while for lost cause revisionists and southern apologists to figure that out for themselves.
