    This time of year pretty much puts me into drone mode. I see the best and the VERY WORST in people this time of year. I have been getting messages and the occastional "reported item" about the different threads. So I shut down all of them except for the first one. If you want to add anything, go there.

    http://washingtonflyfishing.com/forum/index.php?threads/nfr-no-solution-just-dead-kids.84703/

    But DO NOT start another thread. I didn't do a delete of any, so the content is there. But if you want to bash each other on that one thread left open, so be it (just try to keep it as UNPOLITICAL as you can). I don't want to boot anyone at Christmas, and have left my high rev nature this time of year from clouding my judgement (I probably would've booted a ton of you by now LOL). So please, I understand the tragedy at hand. I have my kids, and couldn't even imagine what the parents are going through. But please remember what time of year it is. Try to put your views aside, at least until January when I'm a little nicer. ;) There is a reason for the season. I don't care what religion you are either. Try to just be nice to one another, and show some peace through the holiday. All I'm asking for right now.

    Merry Christmas to all! Happy Hannukkah to my Jewish friends. (no, I'm not saying Happy Holidays to lump it all together lol).

    As far as I see it Jerry, you are political correct in the Merry Christmas and the Happy Hanukkah. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Thank you, Jerry, for your work here; as well as to all of the moderators, of course.
    Keep up the excellent work.....this has been my favorite forum of all time.
    Just sayin'!

    Thanks Jerry.

    At this time of year think of your family and friends, and be thankful. I can't imagine the void left in the hearts and minds of the families of those twenty children.

    Merry Christmas.

    I'm sure that the fly fishermen of the Sea of Galilee, John in particular perhaps (being a dry fly guy), would appreciate that, Jerry. So would Norman.

    Merry Christmas to everyone. I would like to thank Santa Claus for hearing my request last winter and looking past the foul language I used in asking for a quarterback to replace Tavaris Jackson.
