Happy Birthday (Belated)!!

Nope, not a blog birthday -- this one's barely three-and-a-half months old. Nah, last Saturday was the birthday of a very good pal and supporter of Ragged Thots. I zoned and forget to send the card, so this public semi-shoutout will have to suffice. (He's so modest that he would be ridiculously embarrassed if I mentioned his full name --besides, he's a great source too. I don't want to out him until the special prosecutor comes knocking!) He's a one-of-a-kind guy, so I'll just call him "ERA."

But, anyway, he's smart with great insights on politics, history, sports and comics -- in short, many of the same topics that inspire this little space on the Internet (His peculiar fascination with Pittsburgh sports teams remains a mystery, though). So many conversations -- face-to-face, on the phone, online -- we've had over nearly twenty years have stayed with me in one form or another and managed to worm their way into the blog.

I imagine many others will in the future. (Heck, the e-mails exchanged between the two of us and another pal could very well have been the prototype of many of the group blogs running around the 'Net.)

Anyway, Happy Birthday, ERA! Couldn't have done this without ya!
