As a nearly-lifelong* resident of the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts...

... I take some small amount of pride that the term "Masshole", a derogatory term for those of us so favored -- used by the benighted denizens of our neighbor-states -- earned inclusion in this year's additions.

On behalf of my fellow residents, I'd like to thank the Academy...

* ...save for the 2-1/2 years that I spent exiled in Los Angeles.
