Things only said once.

I like that tag, but I've only used it once (until now). I didn't create that tag to use it only once. I thought it had potential. Or I wouldn't have created it. Oh, the blog paths that seem open and then are never walked down!

Mary Ann Madden, in New York Magazine, had various contests, one of which was unlikely to be needed cards, giving rise to the book "Thank You for the Giant Sea Tortoise."

I remember only

True story, too. Union general in the Civil War. (I forget who, or which battle.)

Hapax blogomenon

Nichevo,
I believe that was "Uncle" John Sedgwick, at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. A reasonably good general in a war that had plenty of poor ones.

That would be in the vicinity of the Carter cotton gin.
