Happy New Year

Almost a year ago, I started this blog because I was pissed off. It has evolved since then into something more than has become an outlet for all of my emotions, feelings and thoughts.

On this, the eve of the new year 2009, I would like to thank all of those who have helped make my blog the success it has become. In no particular order, I would like to say thanks to:

My wife, Karen, for being my rock...I know you probably will not see this, as you don't normally read my blog, but I love you forever.

BPM and JCS, for being the best friends a man could possibly have. I love you both (no homo).

Bruce Castor, for being the best damned Republican commissioner elected last year...well, for being the only Republican commissioner elected last year. Your resolve has inspired me, and I often quote you: "Do the right thing, for the right reason, every time". You truly are a class act, Bruce and I appreciate and respect who you are and what you stand for.

Bob Kerns, for taking on the monstrous feat of cleaning up the mess that Ken Davis left when he took over as Chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Committee. You have my respect and admiration, Bob.

Kudos to Brittany, E-Beth and Lisa for holding down the fort for Chairman kerns and making the office run as smooth as possible during the past few months. Please try to pay attention, ladies!

Stan Huskey and Lisa Mossie for being the (sane) voice of dissent out of all those who work for the Times Herald.

Alex Charyna, editor and creator of, the best damn right wing, conservative blog in PA. Thank you for your continues support. You took a chance inviting me to contribute to the 'Cooler, and in the time since, have become one of my newest, greatest friends. Respect.

To the contributors to the 'Cooler, my utmost respect and admiration...we're always in the top 5 in PA, because of you guys.

To my fellow "indy" bloggers who have linked my blog to theirs, read, comment, share ideas, etc., I say: You are the greatest. Period.

My family, for their support of this endeavor, and for the times they wished this blog didn't exist. I love you all.

Scraps. For being you. Lia, for being my Princess.

Joe Hoeffel, for being the catalyst that made one of my favorite subjects what he is today.

I have to thank King James the Turd, El Rey Jaime la Mierda, KJIII, James Rex, "The Turd", King James of Montgomeryshire, and whatever other names he has come to be known by...Jim Matthews. Without you, there would have never been a "Writemarsh!" Keep being you, Jimbo, and I'll keep being me.

Most of all, I thank you, my readers, who have made me the mild success I like being...To quote the liberal, trash-mouthed comedienne(?), Sarah Bernhart, "without you, I'm nothing".

Happy New Year to all of my "Writemarsh" friends.
