Happy Birthday to the Honey Badger

It’s Laird Barron’s birthday today.  As I never tire of saying, Laird’s one of the writers who keeps me honest:  whenever I read his latest story, my admiration is invariably mixed with the thought, “Damn, I’m going to have to do better.”  He’s also one of my closest and dearest friends, and I love him and hope he has a great day.
