Dos makes it easy

There will be time for something verbose and mushy sometime later this week. For now, just let it be known that the kid known as Dos arrived last night at 10:16pm and weighed in at 7lbs 4oz. He came into the world quickly and, all things considered, pretty easily.

He and his mom are both doing well 10 hours later.

Thanks for all the congrats and well-wishes.

    Allow me to add to the congrats and well wishes. I’ll throw in a good luck there, too, but without the biting sarcasm that parents of young children like me usually mean when they say that.

    I just happened upon your web page while trying to recollect the Cory Harris/Marcus Whitfield story that ISN’T on the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office Memorial page.

    I hope you have time to continue this site and deliver outstanding commentary and insights. Loved your work at WYFF and didn’t know what happened between those days and now…other than you were going to focus on poker in some way. I’m bookmarking this site.
