My Only Friend...The End

So, it looks as though most of us made it to the end of another year. And not soon enough. Thank goodness we can finally say Goodbye and Good Riddance to this rotten year of our Lord, 2009. One of the worst in modern history for the United States, 2009 will only be missed by heathens, Southern Republicans, devil dogs and die-hard followers of the Marquis de Sade. The only thing that turned out to be Good in this terrible 12 months was the dramatic reversal of fortune for my University of Kentucky basketball Wildcats, which I have recently fallen back in love with.

I have been extremely busy of late and have neglected you, my faithful readers, while in pursuit of gainful employment and other futile undertakings. I offer my apologies and ask for your patience as I get my affairs in order for my triumphant return to blogging. We have much to cover and there are big elections coming in 2010. Keep your eyes open and send in those tips, rumors and gossip for stories to be published here in the coming months. You will not want to miss it.

And what of health care reform? It is a topic that should be discussed heavily on this level. But a warning: If you receive health care that is paid for by the government, you are not allowed to participate in the discussion by saying the government doesn't belong in health care.

We were sold a load of HOPE in 2009, and most of us bought it. But HOPE don't pay the bills. Let's get something done around here. Merry Christmas, and best wishes for a happy new year.
