Finally, don’t forget the many links that follow this article. I have one friend, a rather frustrated woman, who takes her anger out on restaurant servers regularly, keeping them hopping with constant demands. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler.

Most of the "superior class" of settlers, to whom the New Zealand]oumal was referring in 1844, brought with them their own private collections of books, but soon felt the desire for new reading matter. There will be essays on the presence or absence of public restrooms in bookstores, of falling in love with coworkers, of the sacrifices necessary to work in an industry whose average annual profit margin is two percent, of the greatness and weirdness and nobility of this embattled, glorious profession.
