Get The Party Started

While there may or may not be such a thing as a hero. There certainly are some individuals that have truly inspired, some famous and some not.

Wheaton Heroes is retiring. No, not one of those fake Brett Favre retirements. Time to get some work done, time to hit the books, time to stand in Times Square with a bullhorn and preach to the choir and then go eat a sandwich.

Thanks for all the wonderful emails, nominations, and comments. Wheaton College is truly a unique institution that has been home to the historical, crazy, dogmatic, amazing, creative, and thoughtful individuals across the entire spectrum of the Kingdom.

Apologies to all that I have offended, and that includes you Margaret. Hopefully someday God will let us in on all the jokes. Until then, lets try to laugh even if we don't understand the punchline.

You do know that heaven's gonna have a lot of women helping run it, so get used it! (Heaven is a rumored to be a party - you better start practicing) I think we will even be surprised at who else got an invite.

I raise a glass of Hogwash Hickory-Smoked Porter to the Wheaton Heroes.

Stay thirsty my friends.


I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I'll drink all the time
'Cause we're lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we're lovers, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time,
just for one day
We can be Heroes, for ever and ever
What d'you say?
- Bowie
