SPEAKING OF THE GRIZZLIES... 

SPEAKING OF THE GRIZZLIES...

Amid their laudable efforts to serve every possible facet of Memphis culture, here's some -- um -- interesting news: In his online column at NBA.com/grizzlies, Greg Graber writes, "Appearing soon in this column will be Part 2 of my Grizz Classic Literary Adaptations. This one will be based on Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery.' You won't want to miss it!" A possible excerpt: "Eenie-meenie-miney-moe, killing one will make four grow." Jackson, whose dark short story depicts a human sacrifice in a small,unnamed village, once said, "I delight in what I fear." No doubt Graber's forthcomingt sports analogy would have given the author much cause for delight had she not died so very long ago.
