Of the many things I am thankful for in these wretched and depressing times, I am most thankful for two things: first, the commentariat here at The Other McCain, who extended a host of helping hands a few years ago when I was living in the barracks for homeless veterans after being evicted from my apartment here in Las Vegas and have continued to reward me for mongling the links here. Right up there with you readers, I am thankful that 14 years ago Stacy took a chance and hired me as a (we thought) temporary fill-in for Smitty, who was being sent off to Asia to serve as the Admiral of the Afghan Seas. I’ve been filling in for almost a decade and a half, and been blessed to do a lot of stuff I wouldn’t have otherwise: CPAC, The Other Podcast, my first exposure to Vegas during the 2012 primary debates…it’s been quite a ride, and I thank all of you for it. Hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving; I’ll be hitting the buffet at Main Street Station next door to the Plaza before the long holiday drive home to Tonopah.

Also, if you run short of good reading this weekend, the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Based Book Sale is on! Many books for 99 cents, and a lot of free stuff! Check it out! (h/t L. Jagi Lamplighter Wright at Wright’s Writing Corner)
