Hi everyone, Sam here. First, let me wish all who celebrate a very Merry Christmas. For those who don’t … well, Merry Saturday.
There is, however, something we all at LoHud can get behind today, regardless of religion: And that’s wishing Chad a very happy birthday. When Pete left there were, obviously, very big shoes to fill but Chad has done a terrific job as the beat writer at The Journal News and I’m glad to call him a friend.
As he mentioned earlier, Chad is home in Missouri with his family, so I can only imagine his birthday celebration will be fantastic. At the very least, I hope it won’t involve a medical board deciding whether or not to revoke his license or a surprise party that comes only moments after a key political ally switches parties in embarrassing fashion. I wouldn’t be at all surprised, however, if it involved watching some West Wing.
Whatever the fanfare, happy birthday Chad. We’re all glad you’re here.
