Just drive to Brandon and go south on Star Road. It may be slower, but it's much less painful.

Marshall Speaking Report

Filed by: SoMissTV

Report follows
**************

Having never seen a Marshall presentation, I was unsure what to expect. Marshall made it to the building a couple of minutes early, where I had a chance to give him a quick pep talk ("don't suck"). After waiting through the introduction given by the man behind the podium, Marshall bounded up to the mic, grabbed it off the stand, and kissed the stuffy podium behind. Marshall's adherence to antiquated media display technology (overhead projector) was a statement to the spartan existence to which he subscribes. It became apparent that today's college students take no interest in beef plants or Jackson politics. Those of us in the know, however, found Marshall's pithy humor and sage wisdom to be both refreshing and old-fashioned. Speaking with great conviction in his voice, Marshall displayed a burning desire to better his craft (and win the Pulitzer for something... anything, really). Marshall's confirmation that he was offered another job recently confirmed my suspicions that he was, in fact, Bush's first (third?) choice for Attorney General. Marshall, enjoying the fourth meal advantages of the Capital City Taco Bell, wisely declined. During the question and answer period, two incredibly brilliant and insightful questions were posed by the author of this report. Marshall's answers were equally stunning in their complexity and simplicity ("blue" and "adverb"). Marshall sold nearly 700 books in one evening, with 698 bought by one individual. All in all, an exquisite evening was had by all. By all, of course, I mean me.

Great job, Marshall! :)

And I thought I was flat as day old opened beer. Thanks. I was exhausted on the stage -- I was afraid it really showed.

I may have embellished my report a little, but I thought you were solid. You were working with an audience that isn't familiar with the subject of your work.
