I'll get by with a little help from my friends

If I've learned anything in the last couple of days, it's the importance of friendship.

Since my departure from the National Citizens Coalition, I have received an avalanche of calls and emails from so many friends and colleagues offering kind words of encouragement and support, that I can't even be properly depressed!!

I am so grateful to all of you for your warm wishes. It means a lot.

Here's a sampling of some comments:

* "I’m sure you won’t be unemployed for long. With those rugged good looks…"

* "I have no doubt that whatever you choose to do next, it will be done with the same ass-kicking passion for liberty that has clearly driven your career."

* "The NCC is losing their best star!”

* "It's hard for me to imagine the National Citizens Coalition without you.”

Also special thanks to Rondi Adamson, Adam Daifallah, Paul Tuns, Janet Neilson and Peter Jaworski who have all blogged about this.

Blog Update:

Here are some more blog mentions: At Home In Hespeler, Road Hammer, Corridors of Mind, Objects of My Interest, and BBS.

Happy Easter everybody!

Media Update:

I am scheduled to appear on The World Tonight with Rob Breakenridge at about 9:00 PM EST.

Hang in there, Gerry. Your firing is about as much an exercise in BS as was the last budget.

I'm very sorry to read this news and wish you a speedy re-employment in an equally valuable capacity.
