Sorry for using a lousy quote from a lousy actor in a lousy movie as a title, but it does capture the general mood, here in the decompression chamber.

Not only do I have outstandingly steadfast readers — I'm glad to call you all friends — who didn't give up on me despite a long hiatus, not only am I at the sweet and coveted receiving end of many a Southern Belle's attention, who either pick me as their champion, or blow air kisses at me, now one of America's best, veteran OldRustyKnight, wrote a poem on the dissident frogman.

I can't tell you how deeply moved and honored I am, so I'll just let the warrior-poet speak:

"the Frogman"
(a dissident)

cji, 9/1/07

A voice to be read
sometimes heard
words to be said
annoying the herd;

Coming forth truth
dissembled press
trying to reach youth
to avoid lies mess;

The Frogman found
a dissident voice
a message sound
giving all a choice!

Now if you please, let's have a standing ovation for OldRustyKnight, while I'll just go and die content.
