Not that I'm not an egomaniac, mind you.

Anyway, for those who care (and enjoy redundancy), the link:

I appreciate the concern and everyone who reads the blog. I'll be back updating it soon after things cool down a bit.

Rehab was fairly quick, but he was 18 at the time, too.

And I have to believe that the final decision at the Black Tower was made by someone who said, "You know, that new design at Fox News is really sharp."
