Happy Birthday Mike!

Mike Haubrich is the transparently pseudonymous proprietor of Tangled Up in Blue Guy, which is one of the best blogs on my blogroll. Mike is also Minnesota’s Voice of Atheism, as the primary host on the Minnesota Atheist Talk Show (Air America, AM 950, Sunday mornings). He is also politically active and a pillar of society at the local and state level.

Happy Birthday Tangled Up in Blue Guy, Mike!!!!!!

    Greg – I don’t even know how to thank you for this.

    Last year, I got a huge volume of traffic from you and from PZ because I wrote a passive-aggressive plaint about my birthday being insignificant. I was going to do the same this year, but you have made me feel so good about being your friend that I can’t even muster the false indignance.

    Now, I have to write about Mickey Mantle’s birthday.

    I never wish pillars of the community happy birthdays, but in your case Mike I’ll make an exception.

    I love that you are Minnesota’s Voice of Atheism . . . and that you can admit to false indignance about your birthday. That’s what I love about you, the SUPER-smartness (memory like an elephant), sense of humor, and all-around great brother. Thanks for taking up the cudgel of unpopular causes . . . someone has to do it! I’ve already taken the “christ” out of xmas . . . so I’ve done my part.

    Great Dylan-esque photo, I suppose that was on purpose.

    Love, Nancy
