Hi everyone – just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you have a Happy New Year.
Also, if it’s not to much trouble, I’d like you to say a prayer or a rememberence to the people of Southeast Asia devastated by the earthquake/tsunami that struck the region. There are more than 40,000 confirmed dead, with more numbers pouring in every day. I know that sometimes it’s tough for some people to remember there are other countries out there beside the U.S., so if you meet one of these Republicans I’d like you to kick them in the balls ( they’ll probably be male, anyway ) 40,000 times so that they kind of get the idea about how big we’re talking about. Or, put it in terms they might understand, like “almost 15 times more people dead than from 9/11″ or “imagine if you had 40,000 shares of Microsoft…” Then they might follow you.
Sorry, didn’t mean to get worked up, there. Merry Christmas, and let’s hope for a better year in 2005.
