This is good. I don't know if I feel more like crying or saluting something. Or laughing my ass off. But between the drama of it being me and them not being really dead, I guess that would be a bad idea. Some time though, not too many years from now I hope, we will laugh. We will all laugh. Hard. Maybe we'll make an anniversary of today. The day the music died, so to speak. Not. Our coterie will reunite, of that I'm certain, and I only hope that the guys stay safe in the meantime. They've saved my ass more times than I've ever thanked them for, and I'd like the chance to do that. Okay -- here's a salute. To Frohike, Byers, and Langly for being the best of friends, and for going where even they probably never dreamed of going. We'll all be back. And the last laugh will be sweetest.
