Update on Tom: Still need FOO POWER

I haven't asked for Foo Power in a long time but we certainly need it now. For those of you who aren't aware, Foo power is the friendship, the strength, the absolute circle of belief that becomes when all who can come and wish for healing.

As some of you have been aware, Tom has not been on much. And right now, he's in the hospital and needs our Foo Power.


Let's send it to him!!

Get better, Tom! We need our fearless leader!!

FOO on you, Tom.

Is that how we transmit FOO power?

In any case, get better soon. The fish are waiting for that nice warm barbecue you promised them.

There is no single right way to convey Foo Power, and yours is certainly good enough for government work.

Foo Power comin' atcha, Tom. Take it one day at a time. Heck, take it five minutes at a time, if that's what it takes. Breathe. Concentrate of taking care of you and let the rest of the world go hang if need be.

But for God's sake, don't leave jsharr in charge. I mean, the world can only consume so much bass . . . .
