My dear Humoristian hooligans,
You have a reason to live today. A purpose. You woke up this morning with another day to be alive and to love, and to create healing laughter for those around you. Today may you share the laughter that puts things in perspective. May you learn what you need to learn from your mistakes ( ahem… I mean… on the off-off-chance you should make any), and may they bring you a good laugh afterwards. May you be open to the bountiful, over-flowing love and joy that surrounds you.
You deserve to be here.
-Karen Molenaar Terrell, The Great Goof
My dear Humoristian hooligans –
As another day begins in the western hemisphere of Planet Earth, may you find yourself eager to greet the new day – ready to face every challenge, to laugh in the face of danger (and non-danger, too – just, basically, laugh whenever the opportunity presents itself and it’s not inappropriate – well, I guess even sometimes when it IS inappropriate… never mind… just laugh when you can, and especially at yourself), and may you feel hope in your heart at what the future holds. You are alive, my hooligan friends. You are loved. Spread the joy. Spread the hope. You deserve all the good you experience today.
Dear Humoristian hooligans:
The world is in desperate need of a good laugh. As enlistees in the Humoristian militia I exhort you to utilize the full arsenal of guffaws at your disposal. Yes, my friends, it is time to bring out the Groucho glasses, the Who’s-On-First shtick, Monty Python’s swallows and the machine that goes ping. It is time to (pause for dramatic effect) unleash the kazoos! Your mission? To keep a wave of laughter circling the globe 24-7. May the farce be with you.

Dear Hilary Clinton,
So the Democratic party is supposed to be the party of the people, right? It’s supposed to be the party that helps the disenfranchised find their franchisement; the forgotten be seen; the humble be raised up, the hopeless find hope. And so what I’m wondering is – well, how do the Democratic party’s super delegates fit into this whole shebang? You have now acquired a hefty chunk of delegates who do not represent the will of the American people, but of the elite in your political party. And… how do you feel about this? I mean… do you find it all kind of awkward?
