Evan Brandt, Happy Birthday
The vaunted press of bygone days just an empty shell except for some bearded bears still alive, still beating the bushes, in outposts sprinkled about in the hinterlands. Look at you, Mr. Brandt, you're one of those bears so very well respected, still shaking the trees, still a bookend of knowledge in a World gone bonkers at, like water, seeking its lowest level. May this one and each ensuing birthday honor you, a man attracted to knowledge and a man willing to share his with the World.
