"The divergent metaphysical bollywagle we often fixate upon in massive contemplationary measures." um... Anyone want to post that as the definition of MetaFilter?

There's something a wee bit icky about mentioning the bibble on that weblog in the same breath as Dr. King, no? (Though I will remain ever-grateful for being introduced to the word bollywaggle!)

I'd rather have a free bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.

Mr. Graham-Haynes sounds like an interesting guy. This entry, entitled "From Homeless to Harvard," says that his life changed when he was presented with a $500,000 check by a Rockefeller, which he then used to purchase a Volvo, some Yahoo stock, and finish his education, which began with a G.E.D., led to Williams College, and culminated in an M.Ed. from Harvard. At the time he was presented with this money, he says he was a top insurance salesman on Martha's Vineyard.

I'd love to know what it was about Mr. Graham-Haynes that inspired such largesse.

Interesting story; good link.

According to this link, there are several Abby Rockerfellers.

Good point. Of the three Abbys there is one surviving: Abby Rockefeller Milton, born 1928.

Alas after this the trail grows cold...
