    It has been a pleasure to read your insightful bloggery. You are one of the reasons that blogs are at the forefront of a new era in journalistic integrity. Keep the fires burning.

  9. Congratulations and consider it a measure of your keen insight and fine writing. I’m happy for you, although it’s somewhat distressing personally. Looks like it’s going to take me twenty-five years to get where you are now.
