LaVar Arrington vs. Paul Posluszny: Pick one

Yeah, this one again.

For me, it's not even a question. Jack Ham is the greatest outside linebacker in NFL history. Jack Ham is the greatest outside linebacker in Penn State history. Jack Ham is awesome, and a fantastic radio announcer. Jack Ham said Paul Posluszny is the greatest linebacker in Penn State history. Hence, without any question or doubt at all, Paul Posluszny is the greatest linebacker in Penn State history and is thus better than LaVar Arrington, who was a pretty darned good linebacker himself.

A more interesting question is James Joyce. Is he overrated, or, more specifically, is his most celebrated work, Ulysses, overrated? I say yes. Even though I've never read the book aside from a chapter or two. Can you blame me? He writing flows less easily than the writing of Joshua Chamberlain.

Anyway, is a chapter or two enough to judge a book? Sure, why not?!

He stole the title from the name of the greatest general ever (I guess there was some Ulysses before that, but whatever) and the last chapter - the only chapter we men are truly interested in - with Molly Bloom's, um, activities is so completely unbearable to read (I've seen it called "revolutionary" or whatever, but, while there are no rules of grammar or punctuation in my head, my thoughts flow easily, naturally, like most humans. If Joyce wanted to represent human thoughts, is that really the best he could do?) that I'm inclined to think the man was just like a Michigan man: pretending to be awesome, but really somewhat pedantic.
