LOL, Colin ... I haven't been upset since Birdtown rescinded their secessionist movement and those demands for their own Birdtown Patch

Sounds good. Perhaps I am biased, but I believe Lakewood Patch already has the fella worthy of your "time and tired eyes." It's me! But if you'd like to talk about how to make the site better, you can usually find me at a Lakewood coffee shop... Send me an email at colin.mcewen@patch.com.
