Of Mice and Men6



A common characteristic of people is they're yearning for something more. Everyone has
dreams and ambitions that they try desperately to attain. Most of the time these dreams

only themselves but also others in the process.

George from Of Mice And Men was a poor, traveling farmer who's only goal in life was to
live in his own land and have a successful agricultural business. In trying to make his

reputations, and forgot who he was for awhile.

Lenny was a kind, dumb farmer who had the utmost respect for George. Unfortunately George

suddenly get hints that George does in fact have a place in his heart for Lenny. Lenny's
ignorance leads him to trouble just as much as his dreams of rabbits and land. In fact,

Also the voiceless people around Williard and the vulgar people around Milton drives them away. Finally the death of Elizabeth Williard pushes George Will

    Howard Stern Like millions of Americans, I listen to Howard Stern on the radio in the mornings. I think he is smart, quick and funny. Sometimes he is \'\'offensive,\'\' but to be quite frank, I am not \'\'offended,\'\' because what he says falls within the realm of words and subjects that, as an adult, I have long been familiar with even without the tutelage of Stern. Unlike millions of Americans, I do not listen to Rush Limbaugh on the radio. One reason for that is that I am usually at the movi
