    Three years old

    October 12, 2008, a day which shall live in infamy.

    The day of the first post at this thing called a blog which some guy decided to call Legal Insurrection:

    Obama is “Door  No. 2″

    It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Three years later the scorecard shows over 9,750,000 visits, 12,750,000 page views, 4,350 posts, 46,300 comments, and innumerable excuses.

    The why’s and thanks already have been blogged, so I will not repeat them but please check them out.  The reality is that without the kindness of fellow bloggers I’d still be a voice in the wilderness.

    And thanks to the readers and commenters, because I know your time is precious, and there are only so many blogs you can read before the boss returns.

    To my wife of 27 years, don’t believe everything you read about women throwing themselves at successful male bloggers.  Some of it is not true.

    The fight goes on, because I’m afraid to jump off this moving train.

    Bill, I told you before and I reiterate now: This is the only blog I read that I consider a must check every six hours or so. Keep up the great work. I also very highly value your recommendations for contributing to candidates. I am pretty sure I have donated every time you have suggested it. Your blog is truly the best.

    Mazal tov Professor. I’m so glad I discovered your blog (via a link from you to me!). The wit and level of discourse of your own posts and the commenters really cheer me up when my local (i.e Middle East) politics get me down, and I’ve gotten an education into American politics at the same time.

    May you go from strength to strength, “ad me’ah ve’esrim”: until 120 – though you might consider that a bit old for a blog. 🙂
