"In a novel, if you're any good, you don't just have good people or bad people. You have complicated people. You have real people." - Salman Rushdie Spending time with friends and family this holiday season has me thinking about the people in my life. In a tangible way, this includes everyone here at WF.org. I speak at length about the writing, opinions and even the debates I have here with my wife and friends. Even though we don't agree on everything and we may be as different as possible, I know you are all good people and I consider you all my friends. So, because I can't give you physical gifts, I wanted to share how awesome you all are. @Lemex - Dude. You and I have had some great conversations and even though we differ on religious issues, I think you are an outstanding person and I have the utmost respect for you. @erebh - It's hit or miss with us but we always manage to wind up on common ground and I appreciate your vitality and I consider you a brother in the fraternity of fatherhood. @Wreybies - It is an amazing thing when two people can get to know each other as a person instead of a label and I cherish our conversations and wouldn't hesitate to hang out with you, preferably where you are because it's cold here. You're a great mod. @Cogito - Nobody beats your sharp wit when it comes to humorous one-liners and even though we don't have the smoothest history, I love the fact that you don't pull your punches and you are never afraid to speak your mind. @Lewdog - If I would label anyone here as one of a kind, you would be it. @thirdwind - You're writing always delivers in a thought-out, airtight manner and I know when I read your posts that I will be impressed with your structure any diligence. @Duchess-Yukine-Suoh - You are by far the most mature writer I have ever met for your age. Your grammar, punctuation and understanding of structure rivals most forty year olds I know. You have a giving heart and a kindness that is refreshing. @minstrel - You are a fair and even-handed moderator and I know I can always count on you for a down-to-earth post out of left field that is completely on point and well thought-out. @GingerCoffee - I believe that any two people can find the good in each other and co-exist. Even though we are the antithesis of each other, I appreciate your fervor and passion you bring to every discussion. This place would be worse off if you weren't here. @EdFromNY - I am always glad when you are available to share your experience and wisdom with us. You make me think about things in new ways and I am always happy when I see a reply from you! @Daniel - Thank you for creating and continuing to make this site so great! I know I couldn't cover everyone, but I look forward to 2014 to get to know every one of you better! Quick shout-outs to @123456789 @mammamaia @TessaT @Steerpike and so many others! Thank you for making 2013 that much better and I hope everyone has a happy holidays! - J. J.
