Happy Birthday, Deacon Greg

Today, we celebrate the birth of pundit, deacon and Gemini, Greg Kandra. Greg’s one of my personal heroes, for three reasons: 1) he is sincerely and completely committed to serving God; 2) he’s worked as a real, live media guy; and 3) his blog, the Deacon’s Bench, gets hit like a ten-dollar hooker. For him, I offer this classic tribute from the golden age of black-and-white film:

Anyway, like Alfalfa and the gang sing to Mr. Hood, happy birthday, Greg. Hope you’ve got something special and memorable planned.

    I’m all ferklempt! :-) Thanks, Max.

    And here’s to hoping and praying that you, too, will soon find yourself getting “hit like a ten-dollar hooker.” What blogger could ask for anything more?

    You know it, daddy. I’m hoping Instapundit deals my blog the equivalent of a working-over with a leather sap.

    Seriously, Greg, I hope you have a wonderful anniversary, with nobody giving your frogs or eating your food.
