The photo shown here is one year old. Last year at this time, O'Hare and I were engaged in a Blog War, passionately taking opposite sides on the Gracedale issue. Because Bernie has the expertise to file lawsuits, I actually cropped off his stomach in the photo, as not to enrage him. I labeled the photo The Consigliere. I reprint it now because yesterday Bernie ran and completed a half marathon. Anybody who can lose that much weight and prepare to run 13 miles in less than a year is probably nuts, just the same, congratulations.
