Farewell to 2006

As 2006 draws quickly to a close, it seemed like a good time to thank everyone who has done so much for me over the last year, starting with my husband, family and friends. In some ways, it wasn't an easy year (as Republicans in general can testify!), but that means that 2007 will seem all the better.

Looking forward, it's exciting to anticipate many wonderful events, including the publication of my first book, due out late this summer. Thanks go to the wonderful people at Center Street (a division of Hachette Book Group USA), most especially my editor, Chris Park.

Likewise, it's been great to have the opportunity to guest host for the incomparable Hugh Hewitt, who has always been generous with advice and guidance. The past year I've also had the opportunity to get to know and work with the fabulous and kind team of Jamie Allman and Smash on St. Louis' premier morning show, as well as continuing with the good people at L.A.'s KABC.

In a more universal sense, prayers and gratitude also go to every single American soldier (and every soldier's family) -- so many are sacrificing so much to keep all of us safe. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all of you.

Finally, dear readers, thank you -- for your readership, for your input, and for the kind notes you email me from time to time. I value your regard, I welcome your participation, and I am profoundly grateful for each and every moment you spend on this site.

Here's to a happy and blessed New Year for all of us. God bless us every one, and God bless America.

How many American soldiers do you actually know? How many are you related to?
My favorite empty praise for our soldiers comes from people like you that are more than willing to send other peoples children to war.
My brother could care less that someone like you - sitting at home, with no personal investment in this war wishes him well.

Empty phrases indeed from the bromide lady. "Free enterprise" (at what cost?). "Religious liberty" (for whom, other than Christians and "good" Jews who don't make too many waves in our Christian society?).

You are so transparent in your greed and vanity and yet you deign to be speak on behalf of traditional values. How dare you?

I look forward to seeing your book on the discount table at every store that is stupid enough to buy it from the Hatchet Book Group.
