"Reserving judgements is a matter of infinite hope" --Fitzgerald

Some interesting facts for today:
--In 1912, the Titanic sank, killing about 1500 people
--In 1955, the first McDonalds open today in Des Plaines, Illinois
--Today is also the birthday of Leonardo DaVinci (1452)

I've been writing a research essay all day (well, at least most of it) for my American Literature class. I am writing it on The Great Gatsby. It is one of my favorite books, so I figured it would be easier to write about. F. Scott Fitzgerald is my favorite author.

Good luck with your essay! I really didn't like The Great Gatsby when I trudged through it for school, but it's grown on me since then.
