i like you, because even though i suspect we have wildly different opinions about what constitutes a good simpsons episode - based on my like of bart gets an elephant (and a gut feeling) - i think you have some interesting ideas that, quite frankly, i can learn from.
i mostly just read GD now and rarely contribute (i used to post as milhouse van houten, by the way) because it has really gone to shit. but wherever you find yourself on the board, it is good to have a smart veteran back.
oh wow, you're back. i don't know if you remember me but i remember you back when i first registered to nhc and you left after awhile then. i'm glad that you're up and posting again and happy birthday!
