21 HIM came out to the gloom with a Q noting YHC 51st birthday on Sunday. Playlist was the long-anticipated answer to the question “Vector, what songs do you consider the best of the 1980s?” Basically, if these songs are on the radio in my car, don’t change the channel. There was mumblechatter from the PAX about “why ’80s? Wasn’t he born in the 70s?” to which I respond, “it’s my birthday. So there.”

- River Dawg is hosting a session on Human Trafficking on Thursday 3/18 at 6:30am — hit him up for the deets.
- And sincere thanks to the HIM and F3. I recalled my last birthday Q last March, which happened just as the world was starting to shut down. I recalled pretty much losing it in the COT (and that that was the last “ball of men” COT we’ve had since). Thanks to the PAX and especially Cub Cadet, T-cell, PA, Hi-Viz, Crablegs and Pumpkin Spice for the fellowship this year. Thankfully there is optimism and a vaccine. Thanks to all of you. #ISI
