The Runaway
Norman Rockwell

I chose this painting specifically in honor of Maetenloch's tenure at AoSHQ as not only the editor of a marvelous ONT over the last eight years, but as the gentle but firm adult who guides the wayward children back home.

His final ONT last night was, as usual, well written, amusing, pithy, and wryly observant of the human condition and the unique American experience.

But no place is ever immune to the forces of change and events. Nor are people. And eight years of Obama have taken their toll everywhere. Good cheer and humor have slowly faded and now these are the days of knives and sinat chinam.

Is Maetenloch "Vox clamantis in deserto?"

I hope not, and perhaps we can all take this to heart....
