Richard from the Panda’s Thumb earned my undying affection long ago. He works his ass off keeping us up on the antics of the anti-science crowd, and he did me the great honor of agreeing to be one of my Wise Readers in the event I actually get away from political bullshit long enough to actually write a story. (Which will happen just as soon as Obama and the Dems sink this rim shot, I swear it.)
Now, he’s earned himself a lifetime of free drinks:
Muchos gracias, mi amigo.
This goes for all of you, my darlings: I will never be able to express all of you mean to me. You’re my light in dark places. And you do outstanding work making this world a better place. You’re very much appreciated.
Never forget that.
