My Dad. He was an island hopping Marine in WWII. One of his closest friends was E. B. Sledge. They served together from islands way out in the Pacific to Peiping, China. "We didn't really do anything in the war." Riiight.

Anytime my behavior becamed odious, Momma made me to take a bath. Sometimes she'd even inspire me to move in that general direction...with a switch.

The odious behavior of the benighted true believers who still assign greatness to the current resident of 1600 Penn. Ave. inspire me not to be so gullible.

Mrs. 52's patience is inspiring.

No one in particular. Everyone has something to offer. Even if it's only to serve as a bad example.

My parents were inspiring with their encouragement to always do my best. They had more faith in me than I had myself. They're both gone now, but I think of them everyday.
