Dear Readers, In observance of President's Day, The Day After President's Day, and The Day After The Day After President's Day, The Hater will be closed for business through February 21. Regularly scheduled hating will resume on February 22. In other words, I'm on vacation, so no new posts until Thursday. Think of this as a "Be Back In 5 Minutes" sign hanging in a shop window, except instead of a shop window it's the Internet, and instead of "Be Back In 5 Minutes" it's "Be Back In 3 Days." Anyway, happy Mardi Gras and see you in Lent!
