Hey.
So.

It's Christmas night, and there's one week to go before 2009 and the rest of this festering, pestiferous bloodbath of a decade gets relegated to the dustbin of history.

Some things are definitely better.

Some things are definitely worse.

And a whole lot of shit is exactly the same.

So it goes.

DemocraticUnderground is also better, and worse, and the same. The most important thing, however, is that DU is still here.

So am I.

So are you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you DU and the DUers who make this place what it is. You're all crazy, sane, right, wrong, and all the way wonderful. We have come a long way, and have so very far to go. I'm ready to keep up the fight if you are.

Cheers.

:hug:

23. Never give up!
Things are going to get better. I feel it in my bones and my bones are old and if there are good feelings in these old bones it is always a good sign. Thanks Will and do not worry about keeping up the fight.... throwing in the towel is not an option.

31. I'm happy to be with the DU gang
This year, last year and the years to come. HowEVER you feel about the general focus of this place, the very fact that it exists - and provides a communal sounding board - has immeadiately expanded my "family", and I'm thankful for that. Truth is, I'd rather hang out with the DU group than A LOT of my real family!

35. Ahoy there!
There are good ships,
and there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may they always be.

43. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Will Pitt -
If you are writing it, I am reading it.

You keep doing your job and I'll keep doing mine. ;)

If I ever get within 50 miles from you, the drinks are on me.
