"Last but not least, I'd like to thank Droopy (Robert Wright) for bringing us bloggingheads so we can actually see who we've been reading."

"It does tell us something to be able to see these awful people. Except for, of course, Mickey Kaus, there's no one I could see being a friend of mine, offline, and - after seeing them here - would ever want to read again. Bloggingheads is providing a valuable service in that way."

Hey! What about me?!!

I don't quite understand where Wright got his intellectual cred. I'm always a little taken to find that the hysterical undergrad is actually a middle-aged man.

You've already got your groupies right here anyway, regardless.

But since you ask...

Wright: "Tennessee-Tuxedo-Bob-Wright will not fail!"

Kaus: "Duh, OK Bob."

Althouse: Hey! What about me?!!

I don't know, but he wasn't exactly defending Althouse in the comments, so the omission may not have been unintentional.

Did she feel hurt at being left out of the compliment?

"Hey! What about me?!!"

Oh, you have bigger problems with all these people wanting to shower with you.

First off, I read you every day, Ann. Most of these other jokers I've only occasionally read, or I'm being introduced to them for the first time.

Second - and it's great to have holidays so I can unburden myself of this stuff - of all the bloggers out there, I feel closest to you. As blogs go, iOwnTheWorld and Panda Bear, M.D. are my sister blogs, but, as individual bloggers go, you are my fellow artist - and that matters to me, which is why I get so passionate when I disagree with you. Some (Meade and Glenn, maybe) may think I'm being hateful, but I consider it being incisive, in the way artists can and should be. It's not our job to play around the big issues (play with them, maybe) but not to fool ourselves regarding what's what. (I think you're trying to find something important and - at this stage of my life - so am I, so we compliment each other as we progress, each providing something insightful to the other.) We were made for the salon, you and I, and the fact you've provided one is something I consider wonderful. I don't "care" (in the traditional sense) that we disagree - if we didn't it wouldn't be worth it:

I don't agree with any of my best friends on everything.

We're artists, not automatons, like so many others.

Anyway, Happy New Year, Ann (and Meade) and many, many more to come:

I'll be here as long as we can stand it.

Your friend,

The Crack Emcee

Jeeez, I thought boringheads is where all those actors went after Todd Browning died.

But the comment section over there is a great place to hang out.

If you have a problem with insomnia!

The only thing that works better as a soporific is if Richard Dolan writes you a letter.

Of course those require a prescription from your primary care physician.
