"I've had the sort of day that would make St. Francis of Assisi kick babies." --Douglas Adams

Gene is the practice kid. He knows this. We will do way better by Neil. Evidently the senior year is one deadline after another. And then there's the girlfriend and the basketball and the driving. The deadlines have a lot of competition for his time. It's a tough balance for me - keeping him accountable, helping him get the work done and submitted without actually taking over and doing it for him. For most people this is not a challenge. For me it is. I'm getting better. I'm a damn good editor but I'm not a re-writer! Gene is going to college. That he wants all for himself so I know it will happen. So is Neil. That kid has his shit together. The big one does too, he just gets distracted a little more easily.
