There's a "U" in Falkner

Faulkner Friday: William Faulkner's connection with the University of Mississippi was a varied one, including a stint as an abysmal postmaster. Regardless, Ole Miss has put together a vast website dedicated to the writer. Learn about his life, his family tree, his home at Rowan Oak, and even a FAQ for those common questions. Learn about his novels, his short stories, and his poems. And if that's all old hat, how about information on his work in Hollywood, a source of academic resources on the writer, a listing of other websites on Faulkner, and lastly, a page of trivia, quotes, and quizzes.

I'm disappointed that there is nothing confirming nor denying the story about Faulkner being found naked and drunk up a tree.

There's no U in Falkner, but there is a U in "there's no U in Falkner". Spooky.

My dad went to Ole Miss. He really admired Mr. Faulkner.
