Greetings from sunny Los Angeles, where Combat! blog has made it through Thanksgiving with an unusually mild hangover. Everything is great, including the excuse that today is basically a holiday, and I basically don’t have to write a blog. Yet here we are. Fortunately past deadlines have magically become present publications, so you can still read about my dumb opinions in the Missoula Independent, where this week I pretend to be even dumber than I actually am. Gay marriage has literally blown the cornerstone from under straight marriage in Montana. That’s my line and I’m sticking to it. We’ll be back Monday with a little less irony and a little more ability to focus our eyes. Go Hawks!
