If you're wondering what happened to your not-so-faithful correspondent: I decided to honor Veterans' Day with a four-day cough syrup and tequila bender. Men fought for our right to put 'em against the glass. At some point, I gave a speech (there may have been a lampshade on my head at the time) and said some kind of smack to an AP guy, you might find a record of it somewhere. Oh, and here's a tip: Do not use your computer at as a cutting board, no matter how important it seems to cut the limes.
And we had this crazy dream that George Bush won re-election. That didn't happen, did it?
