Happy Friday the 13th! It seems our culture is becoming less superstitious. These days airlines have 13th rows and many buildings have 13th floors. I'm not superstitious myself –if I were, its Tuesday the 13th that's the unlucky day in Ecuador. Still, just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean it's not real. Take, for example, the fact that Ed Stocker has to send this email out for me today because my hard drive has crashed. I don't believe the date or Gremlins had anything to do with it, but still, a little eerie. Perhaps a little bit of a stretch, but I also forgot my lunch at home today.
Then again, there are four dozen donuts at my desk, courtesy of Mack Greene (donut boy). He wanted to get something off the beaten path but didn't have any luck. Instead, we get LaMar's donuts. Even if you're not superstitious, come have a donut to ward off bad luck. After all, a donut with a bite out of it is reminiscent of a horseshoe. Just remember to hold it open-side-up so the luck doesn't run out.
