PHOENIX—Patrick Pryde, beloved 17-year-old son of Charles and Elizabeth, loved music and cars, the Phoenix Gazette reported on page D-18 Monday. "Patrick's enthusiasm and passion for life touched all who knew him," the obituary read. "Whether waiting in line overnight for Kid Rock tickets or checking his car's oil level, Patrick showed an unshakable determination and insatiable curiosity, both of which will forever live on in our hearts and minds." Other items mentioned as being loved by Pryde included video games, the Internet, and cable television. (The Onion)<p> *******<p>Hundreds of teens and their stunned parents converged on a favorite gathering place in Old Town Alexandria last night to quietly remember the popular 16-year-old who died after an altercation with other teenage boys on that spot late Saturday. … <p>Schuyler Hamilton Jones, who made varsity crew at T.C. Williams High School last year as a sophomore, was known as a hard-driving athlete who pushed everyone else on the team, said Paul Fraas, 16, a lanky teen who punctuated stories about his slain friend with sudden sobs. "He was such a great guy." … Jones also was known for playing punk rock music in a garage band with two friends and skateboarding in his neighborhood. His favorite class was guitar lab, his mother said, and he often talked of opening a skateboard shop after college. (Washington Post)

Guitar Lab in high school? AWESOME!<p>That sounds like more fun than cutting up those damned frogs was.
