The best of Horse Racing humor from America's funniest sporting cartoonist. Cartoonist, Robert Tiritilli understands "the ups and downs" of the horse racing world. This former Italian Mafia hit man has teamed with Charles Hellman, a bookie and ex-Little Leaguer, to find more ways to blend these one-panel cartoons with clever captions. They bring out the "FUNNY" in sports. The wit and satire of these cartoons and their absurdities come to life from Tiritilli's pen. His outrageous graphics poke fun at horses, jockeys, owners and fans with equal gusto. Tiritilli has freelanced and lampooned for more years than he cares to admit...
2001 North American Society for Sports History Book of the YearThis volume studies the formative period of racing between 1790 and 1914.

A Horse's Tale is a novel by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens), written partially in the voice of Soldier Boy, who is Buffalo Bill's favorite horse, at a fictional frontier outpost with the U.S. 7th Cavalry. Harper's Magazine originally published the story in two installments in August and September 1906. Clemens wrote the story after receiving a request from actress Minnie Maddern Fiske to assist in her drive against bullfighting. Harper's published the story as a 153-page book in October 1907. Clemen's daughter Susy Clemens, who died in 1896 at age 24 of spinal meningitis, is understood to be inspiration for lead character Cathy Alison. When Clemens provided the story to Harper's, he included a photograph of Susy for the illustrator to use for Cathy.
Author, historian and keen cultural observer Phyllis Tickle invites us to join her in examining the changing face of Christianity and culture. Phyllis surveys 2000 years of Western history, identifying the great upheavals that occur in Western culture and Christianity every 500 years. The last was the Great Reformation of the 1500's; the next is happening now. What are the implications of this "Great Emergence," both culturally and spiritually? What are the key questions and issues that need to be addressed? Where might we be headed next? And, perhaps most importantly, where are you, at this moment? Might you be an emergence Christian?
The six sessions are: 1) Emergence 101, 2) Where Now Is the Authority? 3) The 20th Century and Emergence, 4) Gifts from Other Times, 5) How Then Shall We Live? and 6) Hallmarks of Emergence
The Participant's Workbook contains all the material needed for use by class participants as well as notes for the class leader to facilitate each session; leadership can be shared among members of the group.
