I meant to tell you this a few weeks ago, but...then you went and got cancer, and I kinda forgot about it, and when I did think about it, I didn't think it was really the time to bring it up.

You know that argument we had like a month and a half ago, here, about Measure 37? I thought about that, and what you'd said, and did some reading and more thinking, and looked around at where I now live, unfortunately, and...I decided I was wrong about that and you were right. The land use regs that thing was designed to screw with are a big part of why I'm continually pining to get back there.

Anyway, just wanted to tell you that - I try to make a point of admitting it when I realize I was wrong, and, if possible, as publicly and loudly as I was about the wrongness.

Glad to hear you're not dying, too - my mom went through a scare last year, where they thought her cancer had returned and spread to her lymph nodes, and then we all had to wait around for a week before they figured out that they'd done the tests wrong.

The shirts return! This is definitely a sign of progress.

And we love you too.

These videos are, quite possibly, one of the most positive and encouraging things around right now. :D Also, your shirt is fantabulous.

It walks, it talks, it wears loud shirts.

You *sound* so different. Much, much better.

Very good to see you up and about and looking yourself.

I've been very bad since moving to AZ and have skipped con going almost entirely. I'll see if I can't catch you at at least one this year!

Great to see you!

Yay Jay! So glad you're coming around to feeling better. And thank goodness you don't have to do the chemo and radiation stuff!
