My Short, Simple Veterans Day Message

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 9:00 am

To those who served: Thank you.

To those currently serving: Thank you.

To the civilians circa 1985-1991: You’re welcome.

My suggestions for the best way to thank the troops?

1) Enjoy life in a free country. A gift ain’t a gift unless it’s enjoyed. Do something fun.

2) Be the kind of American who’s worth fighting for.

On The Passing of Fred Thompson

Monday, November 2, 2015 8:00 am

A number of readers emailed me about this story on the passing Sunday of Fred Thompson. I agree, it’s worth a read.

But for me, his passing is a personal blow. I had the privilege of working for Fred Thompson back in 2009-2010 when he had a nationally syndicated radio show on Westwood One. They paid me money to listen to his show every day and keep the show’s website updated.

Best job I ever had.

I never talked to Fred on the phone, but I did exchange emails with him from time to time. And there were even a few precious occasions when, during a show, I’d email him something that I hoped was funny, and he’d read it on the air and actually laugh out loud.

Yeah, I made Fred Thompson laugh. And that thought makes me flush with joy.

I will miss him. He was a good man.

Anyway, I’m taking this a little harder than I thought I would, so I’m gonna sit out posting for the rest of the day.

Meanwhile, these four things:

1) Frank J’s Fred Thompson Facts (which Fred both knew about and loved)

2) Some videos I made from the Lightning Round segment of Fred’s radio show

3) Fred leaves behind a widow and two young children. If you’ve ever considered buying Fred’s memoir, “Teaching the Pig to Dance“, now would be a good time.

4) Fred used to refuse to criticize the recently dead, saying “when God puts his hand on a man, I take my hand off”. Go ahead & say something nice about Fred in the comments.

It’s Almost That Day Again

Thursday, September 10, 2015 10:00 pm

For no specific reason I can identify, I’m feeling a little extra somber this year about 9/11, so we’re going to put up some memorial posts on Friday and just let them breathe for the rest of the day.

Regularly scheduled funny to resume Saturday morning.

iOTWReport.com Down Temporarily

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 8:56 pm

I like iOTWReport, and I post their stuff from time to time, so when Springer mentioned to me that the company that owned their server shut down without warning and that iOTWReport.com is scrambling to get back up and running, well, I thought I’d pass the word along, since Big Fur Hat is good people.

Anyway, they’re hoping they’ll at least have a site again sometime tomorrow, or soon thereafter.

Going MIA

Tuesday, April 7, 2015 8:00 am

Sorry for the short notice, but I need to travel out of town for a while to attend some personal business. Nothing life-threatening, and no death in the family, so no need to panic, it’s just time-consuming.

Anyway, don’t expect much from me until next Monday.
