Please re-consider!

Our friends in the print media should be ashamed for not writing the kinds of stories you have.

Gervais,

I'm gonna miss you like crazy. Please continue lurking about the blogosphere, even if you're not penning posts. My daily blog-ritual won't be the same without you. Best of luck to you in the future. May the pork be with you!

Hey in all seriousness, the fact that the voices in Will Folks' head are getting together right now and saying "oh, thank God he's gone," should be enough to keep you at it.

Pretty please?

Unless you're leaving to manage Jakie's race. In which case, more power to ya.

Gervais,

I appreciate the posts and hate to see you go. You have a knack for the storyline. Enjoy the family and Q. All the best.

This is my first morning offically without GSB. Somehow the sun does not shine as brightly, nor my coffee taste as strong.

Indeed these are sad times.

Still, lots of love to you and yours GSB. Good luck and do not be a stranger.

Hah Hah Hah. That was a funny joke. You got us. Way to pretend you were shutting down.

Now start posting again, damnit.

Seriously. So bored. Spending far more time on other blogs than is good for me, desperately seeking to fill the void. Light . . . growing dim . . .

At least promise that you'll send up a bat signal over the Statehouse to let us know when you're up and running again.

You haven't, I noticed, linked to the recent reports about Howard Rich's many charitable donagtions, including significaht donations to homeless advocacy organizations and a non-profit that buyd bulletproof vests for cops. Is this a partisanly-charged oversight, or did your older brother (Rod Junior) pressure you to not mention these?

I thought your Op Ed piece in today's State was really well done. You sure you don't want to come back and write here?

Please????

Hate to change the subject, but...
For those of you within driving distance of Columbia, South Carolina, here's a great opportunity:

On Saturday, September 9th, there will be a barbecue luncheon with special guest, Representative Tom Tancredo of Colorado. While Tancredo is a diehard Republican, he has been bold enough to admit, "The American people don't understand what Republicans stand for anymore, American conservatives have watched dumbfounded as their Congress -- their Republican Congress -- and the Republican White House engineered the largest expansion of the federal government in modern history." In other words, he's a man of principle, rather than party politics.

This event is being planned and organized by Americans Have Had Enough! (an immigration awareness group) who have sponsored Rep. Tancredo's visit to South Carolina. The event will begin at 11 AM on Saturday, and will be held in the Vista Room at the State Museum of South Carolina, 301 Gervais Street, Columbia. The cost is only $15/person, which includes a buffet meal catered by Maurice's Barbecue.

Rep. Tancredo, who represents Colorado's 6th Congressional District, is a school teacher by trade, and served in the Colorado Legislature and in the Department of Education for former presidents Reagan and Bush. He also headed up the Independence Institute, a libertarian think tank based in Golden, Colorado, prior to being elected to Congress in 1998. Since that time, Rep. Tancredo has been most well known for his service as Chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus, a member of libertarian Ron Paul's Liberty Caucus, and author of the best-selling book, In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security.

This is certainly a great opportunity to meet Rep. Tancredo (whose name has been mentioned as a possible Presidential candidate in 2008) and other South Carolina elected officials. (not to mention the barbecue!)

Also, if any of you are available on the day before (Friday, September 8), Rep. Tancredo will be speaking at Smith Auditorium at Greenville Technical College in Greenville at 1pm. This is also open to the public.

If you have any questions, more information will soon be available at the Americans Have Had Enough! website at: Http://www.americanshavehadenough.org

See "Monster Stomping the States" (http://www.tompaine.com/articles/2006/09/22/monster_stomping_the_states.php), which left out the state of South Carolina and the topic of education. I sent a correction, directing the author here.

(and hurry back to blogging)
