It was my great pleasure and privilege to serve with you for two years.
Two of the best years I have spent on this site was spent in the company of the Rescue Rangers, and I learned from you all, making friendships along the way that will, I believe, endure many years.
The work you do adds real value to Daily Kos, and in its turn adds value to the ongoing struggle for social justice in this great nation.
More than most readers here, either regular contributors or ad-hoc visitors, I know the dedication, skill and judgement that goes into selecting Diaries for that prime position on the site. I understand the sacrifices each of you make and the experience and skill you bring to the task. Even though I have been gone a while I have never forgotten, and never will forget that we all owe you a great deal of thanks for what can be both a rewarding and thankless task ... often at the same time.
May you go from strength to strength in 2014
Happy New Year to you all.
