Like some of you out there, my office is closed today in observance of Veteran’s Day, so I have the day off work. Even though I enjoyed the hedonistic pleasure of staying in bed like a sloth until the ungodly hour of 8:30 AM, I am nevertheless using my time off to get some work done; transcribing an interview for an artist bio I have on deck. There are worse ways to spend a quiet weekday at home. At any rate, I wanted to give a shout out to all of the men and women who have served our country through military service. My Dad, who just celebrated his ninetieth birthday last month, is a retired career Marine and a proud Veteran of both World War II and the Korean War. The stories he could tell you would blow your head right off. He is awesome and I am proud that he is my Dad. I am not a fan or supporter of any war, but I support our troops. President Obama, please bring our guys home.
