There’s a side of E. Robert Nassikas you don’t know. I am a jackass liberal, and he’s my polar opposite. On politics, we fight like cats and dogs hyped-up on espresso.

Yet, there’s not one liberal in town with whom I’d rather dine, travel, laugh and experience the arts and culture.

Nassikas is a consummate writer, photographer, artist, humorist, world traveler and debater. He’s a true friend and a wonderful father of two.

He raised his daughters to be free thinkers, even though he knew they’d probably disagree with him on politics. They do.

He has many liberal friends. Who knew?

So Happy Birthday, Mr. N. May the Greek goddesses bless you and may you outlive all your enemies.
