E-mail addys from the before time

I'm ploughing through old files and am surprised to find Andrew Brietbart in my ca. 1998  e-mail address book. I have no remembrance of what it was we conferred about, but it had to be through Free Republic where I maintained an office for several years.  Of all places, guess where I verified that "andrew" did indeed post there?  DU! .  This could explain a fairly recent and mysterious episode where he contacted someone else ... about somthing. 

Another of my old e-mail pals in that era was Andrew Sullivan, to whom I argued that Bill Clinton was a sociopath.  Over some period of time, at his bequest, I supplied him with various articles by psychiatrists that buttressed the  point.   That led him to write in New Republic, of which he was then Editor—  and state later on television—  that Bill Clinton was a sociopath.  I had a beer and a cigar over that one.

Oddly, it was a time where Sullivan, an openly gay Catholic with HIV, was calling for the church to expel  homosexual priests! — during a media frenzy over pedos in the church..   I argued that a priest being homosexual was no problem,  as long as he observed his vow of celibacy. Hard to believe, wot.  Later,  his homosexual side overtook his life.  He sees everything through that prism, and lost all common sense. He's still around, but operates within that liberal cloister where no sun light shines, and nobody outside pays attention. .

We have two birthday celebrations going on here, so I'm busy spackling.  I walked by my computer just now and this picture was up.  I love it; maybe the most alluring pic I've ever seen.  I don't know why.
