Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

Roll On Columbia, Roll On!

I watched the TdF this morning. It is uplifting to have an American team, the erstwhile Highroad team, now Columbia, organized on the premise of clean, drug-free competition. I think I'll have to chuck my cynicizm for a couple of days to appreciate their effort. Back in the 1930s, Woody Gutherie wrote a theme song for them. Insightful. He said it better than I ever could:

Roll on, Columbia, roll on, roll on, Columbia, roll on
Your power is turning our darkness to dawn
So roll on, Columbia, roll on.
