5 Million Visitors

Join me in congratulating James for crossing the 5 million visitor mark. It̢۪s quite a landmark, and completely deserved for what I have long considered one of the top blogs. In each post James blends components of news aggregation with insightful commentary, and it̢۪s the only blog out there that I rely on as a source of information.

Congrats to him and thanks to you for continuing to visit Outside the Beltway.

Update (James Joyner, 25 October): Thanks, Leopold! And thanks to all who’ve visited the site. Certainly, when I began this enterprise the last day of January 2003, I never thought there would be 5 million visitors ever, let alone in less than three years.
