My friend Kyle Hendrick from Chattanooga send in a nice comment this morning, referencing a post of over 4 years ago that, quite frankly, had completely slipped my mind. I looked it up – and here it is:
The President’s daughter Jenna has written a book that she "very, very modestly" hopes will have the influence of Anne Frank’s The Diary of Anne Frank.
Like Jenna, I too find myself tightly bound by humility. Her willingness to reveal her hopes despite her extreme modesty compel me to reveal one of my own hopes: that this blog will have the influence of the Declaration of Independence.
There. I said it. I feel better already. Many of you plaintiff’s lawyers simply cannot comprehend the burden of being "very, very modest." Indeed, I felt extreme anxiety for weeks calling this blog "Dayontorts" and took this step only after discovering, much to my dismay, the "Humbleontorts" was not available.
