For those of you who have been worried, rest at ease, Our Esteemed Vileness is alive and well. I too was getting concerned when my emails and phone calls went unanswered, but just as I was reading The Imperial Mother’s comment that Misha was down with a bug my phone rang and a very sickly sounding Misha confirmed that he was indeed alive and, well not exactly kicking, but alive none the less.
He’s been a fighting a pretty nasty bug and in the warped time/space continuum of fever and meds had lost track of how long he had been out of touch, especially in light of all that’s happening right now. He apologizes for any concern he may have caused, and in his words “the bastards won’t get me without a fight that will make national headlines”. Or some braggadocios bullshit like that, I lose track of what he’s saying after a few minutes. You think he’s a wordy bastard in print, try talking to him sometime. (Just kidding Misha, you know I have to bust your balls for not returning my call sooner 🙂 )
Having said all that, the fact that we are know living in a country where we have to worry that some evil has befallen a fellow patriot because he speaks out against Ear Leader has increased my hatred for the statist usurper and all his fucking sycophantic minions even that much more.
