I am extremely lucky. I have stitches in my head ó and probably a concussion ó and a compression fracture in my lower back without any neurological damage but which is requiring loverly pain meds. Thanks for all good wishes. Iíll be around here and the shebeen will reopen soon

1. Love Charlie Pearce... Heal quickly and thoroughly, Mr. Pierce. Your voice is treasured.

Anyone else had more close calls with cars lately? I actually think pedestrian crosswalks (especially at stoplights) are the worst. Many cities have record numbers of pedestrian strikes and frankly, turn right on red seems to be a large part of it. People just frequenly don't look right when turning right.

6. Hope Charlie gets well soon! Somebody tweeted Charlie "Black Suburban? DC plates?"

Apparently , he got hit walking across the street on a crosswalk.

8. I have a strong prejudice against people in giant black SUVs.

Especially if they have teabagger plates or tinted windows. They mostly drive like assholes.

16. I can relate to that. I used to work in Little Rock. It snowed about 6 inches and was still coming

a little bit as I drove my worn out piece of junk Geo in to work from outside Perryville. (about 30 miles). Not a bad trip, all things considered until a Big black Suburban (Probably 4WD also) blaring its horn flying around me on the 2 lane. I was going a respectable speed of about 20 MPH considering the ice and snow and wind.

I kept chugging along when I looked to the right and saw a lot of pine trees shaking.

No I did not pull off the road. It was way too icy to stop any way.. I got into work with a smile on my face.

11. I just turned on the Stephanie Miller Show in hopes of hearing Charlie

I'm guessing he won't be on this morning since he's hopped-up on loverly pain meds.

14. Because of you, Mr. Pierce,

I am now in the habit of referring to our current commander-in-chief as the president*. And that's the least important takeaway I get from your daily column. Get well soon! Democracy needs voices like yours.

15. His "vulgar talking yam" description also resonates!

Charles Pierce is essential reading.
