While we’re talking about March birthdays, there is another I
must reluctantly mention. It so happens that today is my
birthday, and even worse, my age is one evenly divisible by 10.
If you’re thinking 20, you’re very sweet, but wrong.

Thanks so much for your kind wishes, especially to my
friends in northern VA who threw me a party last weekend. It makes
the feeling of mild depression I’m sure to have all day just a
little better.
