I enjoyed your blog thoroughly until you switched to these lame haiku. Can you get back to actually saying something?

Michael Hovnanian said...

No, not at the moment. Check back again in September.

Hi Michael,
I just wanted to tell you that I find your haiku to be pithy and witty!

Michael Hovnanian said...
