I foolishly scheduled a date for tomorrow. Why is that a bad? Because tomorrow is the Cowboys' regular season opener. Against the hated New York Football Giants.
I actually thought about re-scheduling. But I did not. That's called maturity. And suaveness.
Why Colonel Sartoris?
Allow me to explain the puzzling title. Colonel Sartoris is William Faulkner's greatest character. He exemplifies those values that his society cherishes, namely tradition, patriarchy, courtliness, and courage. Though modernity's slow march tries to strip him of these things, Sartoris continues to live as he always has, knowing that "the past is never dead. It's not even past." He seeks order in the honorable folkways and mores of his forbears. Let us not forget his example.
