As 2008 draws to a close, it’s appropriate to take a moment and ruminate over the year that’s ending. 2008 was a landmark year: the country elected its first African-American president as the economy spiraled into a tailspin. Real pain results from the economic collapse; millions are out of jobs and more will lose them. Terrorists turned Mumbai into a bloodbath. Islamofascists remain determined to harm Americans simply because we are not Muslims. Galveston was nearly wiped off the map by Hurricane Ike.

2009 can only be a better year.

So, to my readers, Susan, Nero, Aurora, and I wish each and every one of you a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2009. And I thank you for taking your precious time to visit my little corner of the Internet and indulge my rantings. And thank you to each of you who spent your precious dollars to purchase copies of one of my books this year. I appreciate it very much.

    Thanks for cheering me up, Eric. LOL!

    I’m about now ready to go out and slaughter an Islamic fundamentalist or two with my bare hands. Unless, of course, they happen to be local incognito plumbers that are willing to work underneath battlefield vacation trailers on National holidays.

    2009 has already started out with a rather unexpected bang. Here’s hoping that the explosions subside and that we can all band together and stem the infidel tide.

    I’m already about set to hang out a ‘Gone fishin’ sign, yet I’m still optimistically pessimistic about this great nations future depredations and remain a steadfast Phillies fan.

    Did you 4get about them fightin’ Phils??????

    Happy New Year my dear friend, and a great 2009 to you and all of those you cherish. As I will certainly, in turn, cherish you and yours…………..
