Ever since I learned you were the Don in the Throw It In The Woods commentaries, I've been reading your archives and enjoying them very much. You have a way of getting me all militant and laughing at the same time. If there's one thing I admire, it's exquisite sarcasm.

Love this: "... felt like I'd gone through the looking glass and tea had just been served," or words to that effect.

Unfortunately, as I was finishing up your excellent "First Government Intervention" blog, I received word that Obama signed the NDAA last night. New Year's Eve, when all America's attention could be counted on to be elsewhere. That's probably just a coincidence, though.

Massive bummer.

Anyway, thanks for your good work and the terrific talking points your essays are providing me.
