Friends, it's been a hell of a year. I want to thank all of the people in this tribe, old and new, who helped make the National Conversation a flash point of discussion in 2008. I want to thank all of you who left heart felt comments on the Uncle Ed post. I miss my friend so very much, I can't begin to describe the size of the hole that his loss left in so many hearts.
It's 2009. It's cold in Wisconsin, and in just a mere 19 days, Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States... I need a drink!
I need to relax, on a beach, in Jamaica. Jamaica has reduced taxes for a period of time to encourage tourism. I'll let you know how that worked.
Anyway, hold down the fort, people. The National Conversation (both blog and radio) is officially on vacation until January 10! I may post a few pics from my office (remember?), but no worries, mon, I won't go topless. I don't have "pecks that glisten in the sun" like President-elect Barack Obama.
God bless, folks, and may your 2009 be blessed and prosperous! Psalms 146
