Stilton rides into the sunset

‘Tis a sad tiding I bear.

Stilton Jarlsberg, master satirist, conservative intellectual giant, medical miracle worker, and occasional commenter, here at KisP, has decided to pack-in “Hope n’ Change” (a site that almost single-handedly saved America from dying from Obama-related infections) on Friday.


Not sure what the proper sendoff is for this sort of thing,
so we’ll do it the USAF way:

    AWwwww, now you’re making me all misty. I’ll definitely be around (here, among other places). It’s time for a change of pace, but surely new mischief will be in the offing. Thanks so much for the kind words, DougM!

    Stilton,
    I’ve been lurking here since I found SondraK in Iraq, 2005. I have written her only twice.

    Thank you for the laughs.

    The Watch

    For twenty years
    This sailor has stood the watch
    While some of us were in our bunks at night
    This sailor stood the watch

    While some of us were in school learning our trade
    This shipmate stood the watch

    Yes.. even before some of us were born into this world
    This shipmate stood the watch

    In those years when the storm clouds of war were seen brewing on the horizon of history
    This shipmate stood the watch

    Many times he would cast an eye ashore and see his family standing there
    Needing his guidance and help
    Needing that hand to hold during those hard times
    But he still stood the watch

    He stood the watch for twenty years
    He stood the watch so that we, our families and
    Our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly in safety, Each and every night
    Knowing that a sailor stood the watch

    Today we are here to say
    ‘Shipmate… the watch stands relieved
    Relieved by those You have trained ,Guided, and Led
    Shipmate you stand relieved.. we have the watch…”

    “Boatswain..Standby to pipe the side…Shipmate’s going Ashore..”

    Godspeed, Stilton.
    Thanks for providing a refuge during the Buraq Terror, and keeping one of the best websites around. I’ll miss your cutting wit.

    Thanks, Stilton.

    And that with hopes that you’ll find a new format in which to apply your abundant talents.

    Though the need for “Rope and Chains” may now be abated, there will always be room for your humor, wit, charm and insight.

    Do please consider the occasional encore, would you?
