My first post in 15 years - a lurking intermission record? [View all]

Most of my threads were image heavy, such as "Sympathy For The Devil" when cheney was being nominated for VP again at the 2004 repuke convention. Each Stones verse was posted with cartoons & pics of cheney and Satan, with other DUers joining in like a singalong. Ah, the good old days.

Never stopped visiting, I still remember and value you really old-timers remaining, along with all the New Blood. Keep up the good fight, the most critical of my lifetime.
