Farewell GrayRider

Grayrider, our senior editor,  has decided to call it a day,  and will be departing the site to address real-life commitments. I will miss him--he has been a very big help to me keeping the site running and his contributions to music were also a big plus. Please take a moment to say farewell and wish him luck in his new endeavors. Here is a nice Beatles song to see him off:

Sorry to see you go, Gray. The suave and dapper quotient around here just took a big drop. ;-)

See you in other corners of the net.

Thank you. Your Idol..

Barack Obama

Civil war in Egypt. Syria in flames. Iran on a nuclear march. Libya being taken over by Islamist extremist. What was our Sec. of State doing?

He would have been such a 'great' President.

Thanks for your all of your comments over the years, and your editor efforts on the Main page and the Music page.

Best wishes.

So long and best wishes in all you do, Gray Rider.

"In a friendly Friday document dump – on the Friday after July 4, no less – the Obama administration excreted a 600- page regulation within which was the joyful news that you can qualify for Obamacare subsidies WITHOUT HAVING TO PROVE YOUR INCOME."

I plan to try this when it comes to paying my federal taxes.
