The Sara Situation


You may recognize the gentleman holding the cup of gourmet coffee as one Winston "The Wolf" Wolf.

He solves problems.

What, you may ask, is The Wolf doing on the Mortarblog? Did Will get careless with a firearm? Are people frantically cleaning the back seat of a 1974 Chevy Nova right now?


The Wolf, as you may know, is played by actor Harvey Keitel, whose birthday is May 13th.

Someone else we know shares Mr. Keitel’s birthday.

Joe Louis? Great fighter. But not who we’re thinking of.
Stevie Wonder?  Right day, wrong guy.
Dennis "The Worm" Rodman? Dear lord, no.

We’re thinking of the newest Mortaron, Sara Eleanor Ransick.


Sara joined Mortar on Sunday, May 13, at 4:50 PM, weighing in at a very respectable 8 lbs., 1 oz.

Sara is a Taurus – we know she will grow strong like bull.

May she rebound like Rodman, sing like Stevie, have a jab like the Brown Bomber, and solve problems as dependably as The Wolf.

Remember, Sara (and the rest of you, for that matter,) the wise words of The Wolf:

"Just because you are a character doesn’t mean you have character."
