I won't be tickling the old laptop for the next few days. In the meantime, please feel free to check out any or all of my rowdy pals listed on the right (an appropriate place for them). And, oh yeah, R.I.P Sun News Network. It was nice while it lasted (but it didn't last nearly long enough). You know that a lot of people whose ideas we cannot abide--people who think, for example, that a carbon tax would be a great idea--will be gloating to no end today. To help ease the pain, perhaps Mark Steyn could do one of his amusing AVE ATQUE VALE obits.
