One of the most aggressive email marketers laboring to fill up my Inbox is GoDaddy. The only business I’ve ever conducted with them, or ever plan on conducting with them, was buying the rights to bradwarthen.com. And if I remember correctly, my renewal each year is automatic. This makes all of those notices of special deals pretty superfluous.
But I had to stop and acknowledge this one:
CEO and Founder
Several years ago, I had the honor of being a guest at a Marine birthday banquet, out at Embassy Suites. I’ve been to a lot of black-tie affairs, but never have I felt less entitled to sit down with an assemblage as I did with all those Marines in their dress blues. It was really something. No service honors its traditions with greater ceremony the the Corps, and it was a privilege to have the chance to take part.
And I appreciate being reminded of what happened on this date in 1775.
Semper Fidelis, Bob. And thanks for your service.
And to all you gyrenes out there, Happy Birthday.
