A while back I started posting facts about Ernest Hemingway as a testament to his toughness, as if I were wholly original in doing so. Imagine my surprise when I discovered I was not the first to posit that Big Papa could kick Chuck Norris’ ass.
A thread on pbnation.com has me beat by four years. These warrior poets, you’ll see, debated fiercely on the virile merits of each contender, bringing several truths to bear on the discussion. In the end, it was the proponent of Hemingway who won out.
So while I am disappointed to find my thoughts were less than visionary, today I walk with more sureness in my stride knowing that I am not steered wrong.
