We're all Hokies today

I'm having trouble watching and reading the coverage of the VPI massacre.

Death at any age is tragic and death on a large scale is always horrifying.

So many of these victims were just kids. Just kids. So many with such promising futures.

And most of these young people left behind two parents, each of whom would have without a second thought offered up their own lives if it would have saved their child's.

Then there are millions of us, parents ourselves, who can so easily imagine how they feel. Devestated doesn't begin to describe what these parents are feeling today.

Let's not forget these victims and their families so quickly.

And while we're at it, let's not forget the equally tragic loss of young life that continues in the middle east.

Plane Truth Redux

So I've been reading Jim Hardy's second book on his two different swing theory, The Plane Truth for Golfers Master Class.

As with the first book, I'm seeing some success.

Hardy's detailed description of the one plane swing is evidently sinking into my thick skull. While I had little success during a driving range session last week, I took the concepts to the course with me Sunday, and hesitantly pulled them out of the bag during warm ups.

Eureka! Something clicked and I started hitting solid shots (for the first time in months I might add.) While my on course play wasn't stellar I was pleased with my shot making overall.

Tonight at the driving range brought even greater success.

Time will tell.
