“I regret I’m unable to accept this award in person from Ms. Bates and the readers of the Arkansas Times Blog but I will cherish it always,” Mann said today through Arkansas Times editor Brantley. “Thank you Norma and all you Bloggers, and you, my old friend Max, for being the one to personally pass this honor to me. Truly a special moment in my life of some kind.”

 P.S.

 

I promised myself I wouldn’t but I can’t help it. If you don’t know the Brantleys you don’t know their wonderful sense of humor.

 

As I hugged Max goodbye he whispered, “How come every time we leave here I feel like we’ve forgotten something valuable we’ll never see again?”

 

Laughter is so important, Razorbabies, IMHO.

 

Congratulations you, Hugh.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
