Outliers- Moses and Such

I have always wanted to use the phrase and such and now I have done it! If you grew up in Western PA, then you are wondering, "what is so exciting." Well, and such is an anomoly to this region. People will throw in an and such when describing something that they do not want to extend a lot of energy on. I was going downtown to see the Steeler play an such. And, we couldn't find a parking spot. Something like that, and such. Speaking of anomolies, Malcom Gladwell's book, Outliers is a book worth reading. It shows how the anomolous people in or culture- those who achieve greatness, do so because of a variety of circumstances outside of mere genius and natural talent. Here is a great interview to wet your whistle.
