Rather than wallow in what a sad anniversary this is for KingsFans.com, I'd like to take this time to shout out my parents, on the occasion of their fortieth wedding anniversary! Mom and dad met in 1980, at Glenview Naval Air Station, when I was five and my sister was not yet four, and were married two years later. They've both gotten weirder as they've gotten older (as tends to happen), but they're weird in ways that complement each other perfectly.
I also wanted to send a special shout out to my dad who, at the age of forty, and having already raised a daughter, agreed to raise another man's seeds, as if we were his own. Thanks, dad, for being my dad when my biological father didn't want the job, and thanks for making my mother smile for the last forty years.
Love you guys!
