Takin' the Day Off ...
Over the past few months, we've come to recognize that one of the best blogs going here in the Palmetto State is Free Carolina.
Sure, we've had some fun at the Captain and Pirate's expense in the past (just as they've had some fun with the Stiletto Mafia) but when you get right down to it the hands swabbing the deck over at the H.M.S. Liberatis are nothing if not "on message."
Our blog brothers reminded us of that just yesterday, urging all of us inside the bubble to take a day for ourselves as South Carolina blogbrinksmanship reached Cuban Missile-esque proportions.
It's easy enough for anybody to get all bent out of shape over stuff that gets said here in the blogosphere (see Queen Laurin's minion "friend" rising up on Sunny Phillips over at the Crunchy GOP), but every once in awhile we should stop, take personal inventory and when we are wrong ... promptly down the nearest Budweiser.
Accompanied by the newest member of the FITS news team (shown above), we did just that yesterday, momentarily leaving the tired fractuous chlamydia (tfc) of the SC blogosphere behind to savor more inviting climes ... and serendipitous suds.
A little road trip amongst girlfriends (and thirsty rodents) is always fun, and sixty-seven and sunny sure beats eighty-seven and sunny ... if you know what we mean.
We'll be rockin' the suburbs again to(day)morrow, but thanks to Captain and the Pirate for recommending the quick jaunt out of dodge ...
