Big Wet Kiss.

I wish I could do this kind of detailed, careful work.

I wish I saw as clearly as this guy.

I wish I could be this honest.

I wish I brought this sort of erudition to blogging.

I wish I knew this much about the constitution and the law.

I wish I always had this guy and this guy around to keep me honest.

I have the feeling this guy and I could have a really fun argument on religion. Same with this guy.

I wish I had this guy's passion for a candidate.

I've gotten drunk and talked politics half the night with this guy, and suspect I'd have fun doing the same with this guy.

I wish I could work this hard.

All that having been said, I curse better than any of them. So, Happy Fucking New Year.

    We each have our strengths. It would be boring if we all did everything the same.

    And a Happy Fucking New Year to you too, Michael! All best for you and yours.

    Happy New Year, Michael! You do cuss better than I do, so I won't even try. I wish you and your family great joy and happiness this year. If you're down Louisiana way, look me up, drinks are on me.

    I used to be a teamster, but I'm out of practice. He might actually be a better cusser than I currently am.

    Auguri to you too, Michael! Let me know if you'll be out in L.A. again; I know where good Scotch and steak can be had, not far from the airport.
