Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.

· Notable Quote: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” -----Theodore Roosevelt, American President.

· That’s Puny Department: Here’s a question for you---What’s the difference between a church bell and a politician? Give up? (A church bell peals from the steeple).

· Did You Know Section: Have you ever heard of Ann Wolfe---and what boxing record that was held by Henry Armstrong did she break on May 8, 2004? Ann Wolfe is a female boxer who held world titles in four different weight classes simultaneously. On May 8, 2004, she surpassed Henry Armstrong's record of three world titles at the same time in different weight classes, by gaining the World Light Heavyweight championship, knocking out the defending champion, former NCAA basketball star Vonda Ward, at one minute and eight seconds of round one. Henry Armstrong was the first man to hold three titles in three different weight divisions simultaneously. He won the World Featherweight Title from Petey Sarron on October 29, 1937, the World Welterweight Title from Barney Ross on May 31, 1938, and won the World Lightweight Title in his next fight, on August 17 against Lou Ambers. Armstrong then immediately vacated the Featherweight Title because he could no longer make the weight.
