I will be over by the holy water waiting for an apology on behalf of most of humanity from the nearest religious person …

Today is DuWayne Brayton’s birthday. His web site is here, but his best writing is in comments on my blog!
Happy Birthday DuWayne. Many happy returns. Though I actually have no idea what that means, and assume it has to do with gift receipts.
