Leading Washington to a 14-11 win over Cleveland, Campbell completed 14 of 23 passing attempts for a total of 164 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown. Campbell is the only starting quarterback in the NFL without an interception this season. Going back to last season, he and the Redskins have gone 332 passing attempts without a pick, setting an NFL record.

We're sitting in a parking lot in Marietta in the Passat. In about a half-hour, we will be walking in the Big Peach Fall Miler. I think there are around 800 participants and from the looks of the crowd, maybe 15-20% will be walking. There is a very light mist and if that doesn't increase, it should be OK. It's 56 degrees, so if the precipitation increases it will be uncomfortable.

Here's a nice blurb from Automobile Magazine about a2008 Volkswagen Rabbit S. It also shows a better picture than I've taken of my car.
I only drove the Rabbit briefly, but my overwhelming impression is that it oozes quality and refinement for an $18,000 car. There is nothing about it that feels cheap, from the nicely damped exterior door handles to the typically well-crafted VW interior, with its great seats, to the smooth and refined 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine. There's nice steering feel and a supple ride, and I didn't even mind that the inline-five, which at 170 hp provides plenty of power, was hooked to an automatic transmission, since it's a six-speed unit that's well mated to the engine. If it were me, though, I'd opt for the five-speed manual and use the thousand-dollar savings toward a four-door Rabbit, which has a base price of $17,485. Still, if you're looking to get into a high-quality small car, the two-door Rabbit with a five-speed manual, starting at $15,490, is a very attractive proposition. And heated seats are only a $225 option!

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
