    Jim Souhan is a toolbag.

    [size=16pt]A page from Orwell? Sure, go with that[/size]

    This article is great. Not only is Childress found to be citing one of my favorite authors, but Souhan tries to call him out by citing some Baptist minister as the source:
    "After hours of scrambling to find the story in Orwell's collection, I Googled "Diamonds in your back yard," and found it to be the work of a Baptist minister named Russell Conwell in the 1800s."
    Then later on in the comments section, a poster calls out Souhan and cites the Orwell book to which Childress was referring:
    Orwell's Diamonds

    The short story by Orwell called "Coming Up for Air" talks about a boy reading stories about "Donovan the Dauntless" The Donovan character (ring a bell, Philly fans) is employed to find treasure around the world, but the boy can enjoy the exploits from his own back yard. Reading. We should all try it.
