I'm off sick today and catching up on mail, whilst the kids are home for spring break.  Mayhem ensues.  

The other day I posted at the top of the things-I've-read list the article on "Lessons from Randy Pausch" in Parade, a not-so-trivial piece in the often pop and trivial Sunday paper magazine.  As a follow up, ABC News has a special on tonite, Wednesday, at 10:00PM ET...

Professor Randy Pausch's inspiring last lecture at Carnegie Mellon about living life to the fullest struck a chord with people all over the country. Seven months later, Pausch talks about his battle with cancer, his family and how that last lecture changed his life. Click here to read more.

This from Pausch's website at CMU...

"I am flattered and embarassed by all the recent attention to my "Last Lecture." I am told that, including abridged versions, over six million people have viewed the lecture online. The lecture really was for my kids, but if others are finding value in it, that is wonderful. But rest assured; I'm hardly unique. Send your kids to Carnegie Mellon and the other professors here will teach them valuable life lessons long after I'm gone."
