Through the devaluing of alcohol, Huntington is able to present the situation as having significance because he “wasn’t over full to-night” preventing the possibility of having “snoosed away and never dreamt of looking what my sweet lady was about” (311).

Obesity Lawsuits by Nancy Hall - In Nancy Hall's "Obesity Lawsuits" (2004) essay, Hall is determined to address the problem constantly growing and silently taking lives in America every day, obesity. The author goes on to argue that people should not be suing "fast food companies" (Hall, 2004, p. 113), but rather look at themselves to blame for becoming obese.

Steinberg adds that players who do not use steroids and decide to get in shape by eating right and exercising are not playing on a “level playing field” (Steinberg). Leigh comments that players who use steroids have an unfair advantage over baseball players who do not use them because steroids increase a player’s statistics substantially. Steinberg declares, “Sending players with proven steroid use into the Hall of Fame is simply not fair” (Steinberg). Leigh also looks into how it would affect young people if steroid users were allowed in the Hall of Fame....   [tags: baseball, record breaking, homerun] 1128 words

Michael Hirst's The Tudors and Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall - Fidelity is an f-word that everyone can appreciate. It refers to honesty and loyalty—total and complete devotion towards someone or something else. But fidelity means more than just one thing. It can refer to the relationship between significant others, between a king and his court, and between a cardinal and his closest man. In fact, fidelity can be split into two other words that encompass all parts of it: faithfulness and fealty. Employing examples from Michael Hirst’s The Tudors and Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, fidelity will be seen with new depth and clarity, and hopefully, f-words can be seen in a new, more positive light....   [tags: fidelity, tv series analysis]
