Dearest Casey, Brandon, Ray Gun, Anon 2, Various and Assorted Anonymouses, and all my other devoted Pen Pals:
Tomorrow I head off on a two-week cruise from LA to the glorious Hawaiian Islands.
I know how concerned Casey has been in the past when I drop out for a few days, and I greatly appreciate Casey's concern.
So, please let me re-assure you all that I am perfectly fine --- just cruising on a Summer (almost) Afternoon.
I'll try to chime in with a few comments from time to time, while At Sea.
Meanwhile, I hope you will all keep the faith, and continue with your frank exchange of opinions.
"Frank Exchange of Opinions" is a phrase which emerged at the United Nations during the height of the Cold War when the USA and the USSR threatened to nuke each other. "A Frank Exchange of Opinions" was considered the final phase just before "Mutually Assured Destruction".
Good Luck, Everybody. Keep Up The Good Fight.
