It's been a rough year for all of us, but I feel it's been especially rough for the main author who has had to deal with more than enough shit of late. I, for one, am addicted to this community and am thankful I'm not the one expected to give so much weekly content. Spread your thanks for Brian, and on the same note Ace, Seth, Heiko, and anyone else who makes this site what it is (I know I've forgotten too many of you). I'd rather go down fighting as a Wolverine than win as a Bucknut.
FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
