"But ah'm not afraid of dyin'. Cause I know that when I get to heaven there are gonna be these wonderful trees, and ah'm gonna climb them. But you know what? Instead of leaves and flowers, those trees are gonna have fried eggs, and delicious Virginia ham, and big heaping bowls of biscuits and sausage gravy. And one day, Sammy, you're gonna meet me there, and we're gonna climb those breakfast trees together, and it's gonna be delicious and we're gonna be happy until the end of time."


We need all the balloons!

Funniest thing EVER!
CNN is currently somehow broadcasting the stage manager's emphatic pleas to his techies to release the balloons after Kerry's speech.  It's been going on for about five minutes.  Highlight, "What the fuck are you guys doing up there, we need ALL the balloons!  No, no confetti yet, just balloons!  Bring the balloons!" 
That really brought back some memories.  Thanks CNN.
