I've really been sleeping on the job.

It's a good thing that the current staff does such a great job of tipping over my chair when I've been sleeping too much.

I wrote something to the sheriffs only to discover that certain key people that I thought would see my post were not currently sheriffs!

Well! I aim to fix that right now!

Today, I promote the following three to the rank of sheriff:


    Jeanne Boyarsky

    Ulf Dittmer

    Eric Pascarello


    These three folks have made freaky big contributions to the ranch. This place is only gonna run smoother by giving them the keys to more stuff!

    Y'all need to update your stuff on the contact page!

    Jim, could you please update the sheriffs list?

I almost shot myself in the foot with the new gun. You guys did not tell me that the safety was not on!

So you admit that this spiffy new title of yours isn't merit-based, but was actually won in Vegas?

They always treat innocent people like this...

Poor three people, you have my sympathy!

Don't you also sometimes think that it's only part of a weird experiment? Kinda conspiracy?

Party on!

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
