John D. MacDonald ...

This is incestuous, since he starts out mentioning this blog, but even so:

Really nice post by Steve Perry on the late great John D.

Hi, Dan (a.k.a. FatSam).

This is totally off-topic, but I just wanted to say I miss the old days at LT, with you, butcher, Sad Max, NLB Ford, Monty, Kray, etc.

From what I've read on your blog, things are going well for you: I'm glad.

All the best to you and yours.

Fernie! Good to hear from you.

Yeah, Amy and the kids and I are doing well. Static from certain directions, but nothing new there. My oldest has a 4.4 GPA and Harvard chasing her --

I miss LT myself, but the amount of work I was doing on that website was excessive for what it was bringing back. I and the Director of BI I worked with a couple companies back are putting up as a sports portal for Los Angeles -- and there'll be a Butcher-run Lakers section of that website when it goes live. This is a much bigger project than LakersTalk ever was, and we're still in planning/development on it, but it's a real project that will see the light of day at some point -- a draft of that website is up and running on my server at home.

Hi Dan,

FernieBee pointed me this are you? It's been a long time (it seems).

All hell has broken loose in Lakerland, and there's no LT family to add some reason to the fray. I stayed off the boards for a while after LT went down, until Nugget (at how that turned out) talked me into signing up at CL.

It's still fun posting there, but there isn't the sense of community we developed over the last four years at LT. I miss the regulars there a lot.

Anyways, it's good to see you are doing well. Keep me updated on any new developments.

Will do.

I finally hate the Celtics again. It's pure and it feels good.
