Southern hospitality in harshest of times 

One more thing from Doc Toups ... He made me turn off the tape recorder, but he spoke about the generosity he saw from people who had nothing. Toups evacuated to a state park upstate and came back with food and water, but broke down when he described "people who have nothing offering me something." He said it was the first time he'd lost it this week. We gave him some Sun Herald's to take back with him, and he left to go try to find missing family members. Wow.

Substance trumps triviality, quality finesses quantity and synergy prevails over contention in a Happy Thought Lifestyle. Mentally Absorbed
