Hi! We're back! For those of you not yet familiar with the story, as the blog entry below states, I had moved this site to its own domain.

Great Real ID Graphic!


I was visiting the Loose Cannon Libertarian for my regular fix, when my still-sleepy brain registered an amusing addition to the animated graphic at the top of the page. Love it!!
