Yeah, who is this startup named Columbus who wants to hog all the attention?

Happy Birthday, Rob! And of course, celebrate responsibly and safely.

Hooray! Let the celebration begin for misguided economic policy AND Rob's B-Day!!

Celebrate in a protectionist manner, everybody!

Happy birthday, Rob.

I don't get the tariff thing, as the Smoot-Hawley Act was passed in June and went into effect in March, so why October? Or was that just another Dave joke?

Didn't Smoot-Hawley open for Ted Nugent and Kid Rock?

Jeff---I believe October 8th. commemorates the day Smoot and Hawley held an arm wrestling contest to settle whose name would be first on the bill.

Political decisions have gotten somewhat nastier nowadays.

Ogden Nash, who wrote...

" Senator Smoot (Republican, Ut.)
Is planning a ban on smut.
Oh rooti-ti-toot for Smoot of Ut.
And his reverent occiput. ... "

Etc, etc.

Happy Birthday Rob and Happy July 4th everyone! If you've read Dave's book, "Dave Barry Slept Here", you'll know what I mean.

Anyone? Anyone?

Happy Birthday, Rob!

Happy after-Birthday, Rob! See, this is extra special because you weren't expecting it today.
