It was the kind of speech that could really only be delivered by someone who has been through the valley and come face-to-face with --

herself. You could hear a pin drop in the carpeted ballroom.

hospital by the newly rediscovered Iris, Hobbs muses that his life didn't turn out the way he expected. "How so?" asks Iris. "Just Office 2007 can make life more better and easier.

Iris: The life we learn with, and the life we live with after that.

The other day I received a phone call from a woman I did not know whom I will refer to here, radio talk-show style, as Hattie from Ohio.

Hattie, it seems, had come across my web site, and called to tell me she was getting involved in some new activities and wanted to know how

she could inform people of this on the site. Hattie identified herself as an African-American woman, leaving me with the impression that she project 2010

Laura Ingraham, at a relatively young age, has now lived the life she learned with. She's had loving parents and siblings, a good education,

clearly means to make it count. Like Roy Hobbs her life has not turned out the way she may have expected. It's different. But as a direct

result the people who will benefit from that fact, quite aside from Laura Ingraham herself, are all the rest of us.
