Birthday greetings

Well, it’s one of them milestone birthdays for our old friend, the Unseen Editor, one of the prime movers of this here blog (not to mention, our fellow college classmate.. along with those n’er do wells Miguel Estrada and Barack Obama.) Happy half-century, big guy!
In other news, we’re still at war with Eurasia Eastasia Iraq and Afghanistan, and now… Libya, the national political debate has shifted to which party can dismantle Medicare the fastest, and my soundest political and financial advice remains grow your own vegetables, stock up on bicycle tools and parts, and maybe make friends with some well-armed persons. And maybe having a small boat around might be good.
