As you can see, I'm back from vacation. More on that in the coming shortened week. (I'm off on Friday to go see Dark Knight in IMAX at Noon in AC.) First though, I just want to say thanks to all the readers, in particular those who comment on the posts around here. I started this whole damn thing because I wanted to have a place where I could shout my opinion and not have to filter it (well, filter it as much) as I do in public and with other people. I also wanted to put something out there that people could read and enjoy. Most importantly though, I saw the blog trend taking off with the both the good (Deus Ex Malcontent) and the bad (Perez Hilton) reaping the benefits, so I figured I'd populate a nice big grey line in-between and see if I couldn't gain some notoriety myself.
Getting comments, talking with you all, it makes me feel vindicated for even beginning this enterprise and makes me feel that blogging while I work isn't only fun, it's somewhat vital to the Internet itself. Whomever blogs in fact, is doing the Internet a service by showing just how free speech flourishes on it. However, just because you can say what you want doesn't mean everyone is going to like you. It'll be interesting to see when anyone writes any truly incendiary comments on this blog in the future, and I'll thank them too because whether I piss you off, make you laugh, or get your full approval, I'm here to make you think.
Thank you all for making this run, so far, a smashing success. This just goes to show that sometimes the Peanut Gallery is more interesting than those who are truly running the show.
I doft my cap to you all,
