A word from Holden Caulfield

"Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays by the rules."

"Yes, sir. I know it is. I know it."

Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hotshots are, then it's a game, all right--I'll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren't any hotshots, then what's a game about it? Nothing. No game.

--J.D. SALINGER (The Catcher in the Rye)

Hey hey! It seems you have replied to one of my posts and for that, I thank you! I didn't think anyone read that shit anyway. So I checked out your site and realized a few things...

One...I need to read The Catcher in the Rye again.

Two...You know how to write.

Three...I do not have enough time to read as much as I would like right now, so I will be back and read the rest. All of it.

Hope all is well in Washington.

...as if you needed another distraction from everything you need to do.

Better than checking my site every 10 minutes to see if anyone left me a comment, you mean?

Pah.

An email is forthcoming.

Dude, props on the e-mack there Sean. I seriously need to master the transcontinental game-spit. Not to discredit what you're saying, though, because you're certainly correct in saying that Thea is a very compelling and well spoken author. I just had to do the brotherly thing and call you on it.
