    •  LOL - Armando misses MB (none)
      not only the writing, now he has to do the work of posting on weekends. Heh. Naturally, he'll take it out on you, especially after he shot 145 trying to impress those Repubs he plays (at) golf with.

      Note to Armando... let the wookie win.

        I was worried about ego effect on Armando when this promotion happened, knowing I was going to be one of his top ten targets. I think we're going to need MB back here every now and then to keep him in check. No one else could do it. But, did you notice he finally learned how to use the blockquote box? I think he's taking his new duties rather seriously. He's learning the tech stuff.

        •  Don't trouble MB (none)
          No one else could do it.

          I have to come back specifically to keep the asshole in line, I will.  He already sucked me into this thread.

          •  hey, (none)
            where is that quote from, your signature.  I remember it from the first time I visited this site, it knocked around in my head for a week.

            I tried googling it, unsuccessfully..

            it's a great quote.

            •  That quote... (none)
              ...has generated half a dozen e-mails and about as many comments.  (Not that I mind though, on the contrary I'm quite happy it resonates with so many.)

              Shortly after the repulse of Pickett's Charge, a foreign military observer was speaking to some members of the Army of Northern Virginia about the defeat.  One of them offered the quote in my profile.

              •  it's the single (none)
                and ultimate fight line.  it mesmerizes me.  I don't suppose you have a hard copy source for it?  (since none on-line...)  would love to read the whole story.

        You're calling me a wookie? I'm not nearly that hairy.

    •  Late to the party (4.00)
      but allow me to pay you the compliment of saying that you seem to do a pretty good job by yourself.
