Let me be sentimental and extremely appreciative for a minute.

From an email, sent by my friend Aaron to a bunch of our "ilk":
Flight from KC to MKE is $286. 610 miles from Lawrence to Milwaukee by car, 30 miles per gallon, round trip gas would have been about $80, so a flight would require an additional $206. I am starting the "Get Baumann to Milwaukee and Save the Woodland Pattern Poetry Marathon" fund with $100, if we can come up with the other $106 the festivities will still be on.


I am not worthy of living.

perhaps you've already considered it but my former student who lives in milwaukee told me it was about $30 by bus?

I responded to that e-mail, but in case you haven't read it Rob, I'm in for 50 bucks. Which means that you are, indeed, worthy of life...at least 150 dollars worth of it.

You're like Charlie Sheen in Major League or something.
