Congrats Hanno and the Feast of Saint Michael

Brothers, Sisters, and Transgendered Comedists Everywhere,

We must begin this weekend with a heartfelt congratulations to our Playground playfriend Hanno for becoming a father again. The little guy is very lucky to have the parents he has, but luckier still to have as his patron Comedic saint, Michael Palin.

Add on top of this wonderful news, the fact that Hanno just received tenure and you've got one heck of a week. While much of Hanno's work is in the philosophy of language, he also works in social political philosophy, examining the nature of revolution which makes all the more appropriate the fact that the newest addition to his and A's family was born within a day of the birthdays of Karl Marx and Lenin.

Micheal Palin, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin...that could only mean one thing... World Forum.

Or, for two out of three, there is always International Philosophy...

What are your favorite Michael Palin moments? Or for that matter, your favorite Marx, Lenin, or Hanno moments?

Have a great week everyone, but don't hold your breath for one quite THAT good.

Live, love, and laugh,

Irreverend Steve
