I am a lawyer, born and reared in the Twin Cities. Family is everything to me. My mother I adore and my father I worship (my father is also a lawyer). I have two older brothers whom I love dearly: one, 39, is married and has a young son and daughter and works as a financial analyst; the other is 36 and single and works as a civil engineer. My brothers and I were dispersed for years while being schooled and while establishing careers (Boston, Palo Alto, London, New York; Ames, Fort Collins, Denver; Princeton, Vienna, Washington, D.C., Boston), but we are all home now—and, it is my hope, we are all home for good. The newest member of my family is Joshua, whom I met in Washington while I was in my last year of law school and while Josh was in his last year of undergraduate studies. We immediately became inseparable and have faced the world together practically from the day we met. We have recently returned to the Twin Cities from Boston, where Josh gained his Juris Doctor. We have many interests and participate in numerous and diverse activities, yet we are mostly homebodies, playing sports, reading history tomes (and passionately discussing them) and spending time with family.

“Words and Thoughts of Words”
Which of the following quotations evince(s)organized, logical thought?
“After seizing upon the host of pasterns evident (but not wholly preoccupied) through a skewed layering of a commodicus Vicus of recirculation, we can astutely descry the pining outbursts of leafing smotherings, in and of themselves; anxiously, if not entirely without which we might survive in pairs, with buttocks undivided but intact; and serve altogether in blissful union together, noting no newcomers on the yonder to soil – nay, embarrass – the nescience of the stars.”
-- “Glindarooney,” the essay-writing computer (given the text of Joyce’s “Finnegins Wake”) at the University of Iowa
“Writing in English is the most ingenious torture ever devised for sins committed in previous lives. The English reading public explains the reason why.”
“What members of ARA and SAM try to do is infuse what they have learned about the current situation, bring the words of that formidable roster on the face of Butler Library, names like Thoreau, Jefferson, and Whitman, to bear on the twisted logic of which we are today a part.”
--Barack Hussein Obama
