My father would call me or send me a note that said, "Eschew Communism. Beware the Ideas of Marx."

Here's looking at you, Pop. I miss you.

Thanks for the warning, TEd. Of course the real reason to beware the ideas of Marx is that some day they just might catch on in a place that can handle them.

With all due respect to deceased fathers, I thought this was a place where no political ideas or ideologies where propagated. Mildly put, I'm surprised.

Thank you, TEd... I've come to look forward to your Pop's annual admonition. I would've been disappointed had you not remembered this year. The apple doesn't fall far from the block, eh?

It's more about tradition and Dads, dear Bran.
