However long and hard the road may be, it's Monday Mail.
Today's opening is from Winston Churchill: "You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."
The city sends this:

I have a question: What the heck is a "Multi-Trail"?
Here's an email that as far as I can tell is most likely about football:
I have a question for you: What does Mike Smith of the the Atlanta Falcons and Mark Richt of the Georgia Bulldogs have in common?
Answer: They have yet to win a major championship. Mr. Smith hasn't guided the Falcons to winning a Super Bowl. Mr. Richt has yet to guided the Bulldogs to a BCS National college football Championship. In other Words. Neither can guide their teams to push the envelopes in a winning a major championship in their ranks.
One more thing. I am going to predict that QB Aaron Murray of the Georgia Bulldogs will be a Houston Texan in 2014. Thanks and have a wonderful holiday season.
Just had one. Thanks.
Twice I've been stuck overnight in Houston while trying to fly somewhere else. I have absolutely no idea why anyone would want to stay there.
Here's a comment from Mike Nichols, posted to a column that proposed building a casino here with a giant fish tank in it:
Lessee. What kind of fish tank could we have in the Phenix City-Columbus area?
Bone-heads, bottom feeders, sticklebacks, crabs, big-mouths, piranha, urchins, loan sharks, sponges, carps, blood-sucking lamprey eels, jellyfish, red snappers, crappie -- for a start.
I once read a child's essay that described all the "crappy" fish he caught in the river, so that's really not a bad idea.
