From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

But now that I have your attention anyway, I want to tell you that the official Alabama state mammal is...the Black Bear.

Yup, I know. First we have the Northern Flicker as our state bird, and now the Black Bear as our state mammal. Did someone get us mixed up with, say, Maine?

I haven't seen too many bears in these here parts. Maybe the legislature was thinking of Bear Bryant. Maybe.

Oh, and don't give those legislators too much credit for knowing ursine ethology and thinking that the bear was prevalent in Alabama many centuries ago. No, most politicians aren't all that sharp; they named it state mammal in...1996. 

I'm o.k. with it. It reminds me of coach, and the houndstooth cap.

Roll Tide.
