I had noticed last year that I had been blogging in this space for ten years. And then I figured I would save that info for July when I officially first posted. And then July swept me up in a whirwind and it kind of never happened.
But eleven is a lot, especially when we consider I've managed to keep finding new things to talk about, or old things to rehash.
So given, travel this week, I thought I would point you to some old posts.
My first post was in the wake of the 7/7 bombings in London.
I also had a period where I posted football predictions. (Note: Those posts contain references to the Washington football team.
I got on my soapbox when a school took away prom.
I talked about book banning.
I talked about Spong's assertions that prejudices under debate are dying.
And I talked about "Project Runway".
Those are all from the first year. I'll revisit some others later.

Except you really like that place. And maybe it's the only place that has this one dish that I really like. And every time we meet for lunch, or almost all my friends want to meet, they want to meet there. And I hate it, because I never know if I'll get what I ordered or I won't. And sometimes I just don't eat because I'm too tired to keep arguing with them.
But then I discover someone else who hates going there. And I ask them and discover that they have the same issue I do. And then we discover, there's a bunch of us. So, we go to the restaurant and tell them we want to be treated fairly. We want to get orders that are correct. And the restaurant starts doing interviews with the local news that a few mean people, who probably hate restaurants anyway, are trying to kill their business and if these people get what they want, they'll have to fire all the nice employees at their restaurant.
