• if it is difficult to be a good, dutiful, smart, inspired son, then it must also be equally, if not more so, difficult to be a good, dutiful, smart, inspired father. today, I celebrate my dad—the man I love, respect, and admire; the man who never forgets to tell me: "You give 'em all hell, son, so they remember who it is precisely they're dealing with," or, "If you've pissed everyone off, then you're doing something right," or, "If you're not gonna use your fists as weapons, then you must use your words; be clear, to the point, and don't bother giving a sh*t what anybody else thinks. It'll drive you crazy," and, "I love you, son." I love you, too, dad. I love you, too. Happy #fathersday to all the dads—but especially mine. You're pretty damn great. •
