What Is the One Thing You Know for Sure? 

Week of April 16, 2003

Tina Piña Trachtenberg
Projectionist, Trachtenberg Family Slideshow Players

"One thing I know for sure is that pain -- right? -- pain is love."

Lawrence Valiant
Massage Therapist/Cook, Culpeppers

"You can't trust anybody -- at least there are only certain people you can trust, and if it isn't your friends or family, then the only other you can trust is God and if you can't go to God for anything, you don't have nothin'. You're a very small package wrapped up in yourself."

Mary M. Moore
Graphic Designer, M-Cubed

"Three truths that I know: You should go to bed when you're sleepy, you should clean up after yourself -- even though I'm a slob -- and you should leave good wherever you go."

Jeff Zamaria
Fashion Consultant, Rag-O-Rama

"Only one? What I for sure know is that I'll eat, I'll go to the bathroom and I'll say something stupid every day -- especially the last one. Like, I was going to Los Angeles and we were at the airport, my girlfriend and I, and she asked me if I was going to miss her. I looked her in the eye and said no, and then she got mad. It was a joke, but she didn't get it."

Anna Popovich
Viola Teacher

"One thing I know in my heart is that all human life -- no matter the nationality, the ethnicity, the age or the lifestyle -- is equally important and equally sacred."

Rob McConkey
Trivia Virtuoso

"Two things: One, that my father is the greatest guy I'll ever know and that without David Lee Roth, Van Halen sucks!"
