Happy Birthday, Steve!
I didn’t really know what to do this year because, although it’s your birthday, I feel like we’re the ones who have gotten the gifts: Cave-in and the community that’s grown up around it, the talks you’ve given, and your engagement with the fans.
Ultimately, I decided that what I wanted to give you for your birthday this year is a three-fold promise:
- I will always support you as far as I am able.
- I will always respect your point of view, even if I disagree with it.
- If I do criticize you, it is always with the intention of being constructive.
