In good faith

I am ending my strike. I feel that management and labor have come to a close enough position that continuing the strike would only serve to poison the atmosphere and deprive our 13 readers of high quality hahas. I was also informed that Booty and Tasty are not robots and are in fact real human beings, eliminating what I had thought was my main bargaining chip.

So today I would like to say a few words about Veteran's Day. I still would rather call it Armistice Day. I don't want to take anything away from veterans, and believe they should get a couple holidays, but that doesn't mean you should change the meaning of an existing holiday from honoring the end of WWI to a holiday lacking historical context. In all seriousness, the decision to erase WWI from November 11 speaks of a contempt for history. Like combining Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays into President's Day - there's no need to lump douchebags like Warren Harding in with the good presidents. Why not move Veteran's Day to October 11 and give November 11 back to history? The weather would even be better for Veteran's Day parades.

I think we should take back our history, and I encourage everyone to call it Armistice Day. It is a simple way to say that history is important, while simultaneously being a pretentious douchebag. And what is JiggsCasey.com about if not well-intentioned douchebaggery?

the Golden Bears are just spiraling way out of control.

do you think Tedford will leave for Texas A&M?

No one informed the media that this was a rebuilding year. They figured if you lose 8 starters on defense but keep 3 wide receivers, you've got no worries.

Hey Jeff, you want to move from Berkeley to College Station? I doubt it, he's a west coast guy, has a good long contract. Only if the stadium renovations get scrapped will he leave early I think.

We call it Remembrance Day.
I call it my Birthday!

Yet America forgot what Remembrance Day was for. Huh.

Happy Birthday! As we all know, Jiggs will give you a Hostess cupcake on your birthday if you can catch him. He's like a leprechaun of tastiness.

There used to be a pancake restaurant called Golden Bear.

They had a jingle... "It's a honey of a HONEY OF A place where food is fun. GOLDEN BEAR."

Also, I vote you either eliminate Booty or add three more contributors so you can either be the Three Blogkateers or The Seven Dwarf Bloggers.

All my history books end at the year 1914.
