Well, it's about death, or the process of dying. Without giving anything away, the lessons this old man imparts upon his student in the waning moments of his life are very moving.

I'm going to try to live more like Morrie did...

She might give you a free Pontiac. All you have to do is bow down and worship her like the others...

Re: Tuesdays with Morrie

Tuesdays with Morrie is about Mitch Albom, a local sports writer here in Detroit. Definitely a good read. There was also a movie or TV show version of the book, too.

As for Ohfra giving away the free cars, I heard that a lot of the people couldn't afford the taxes and are selling them off. What did she expect? These people can't afford cars...how in the hell are they going to be able to pay the taxes, insurance, etc. on a new automobile?
