A couple of milestones...

Yesterday marked two events that we at TBWA are especially proud of. What happened you ask? Well thanks for asking, I'd be happy to tell you.

First, yesterday at 4:17 pm central time, we had a visitor from Rhode Island ! It wasn't from Quahog, but from a reader in Wakefield.

Why are we making a big deal about a visitor from Rhode Island? Well, as of the 1st of the year we had visitors from every state except Rhode Island. We even had visitors from Guam and Puerto Rico. So as of yesterday afternoon, we have had visitors to the blog from every state in the nation ! We have also had vistors from every continent except the Arctic and Antarctic..... come on South Pole science stations !

Secondly, yesterday afternoon also marked our 4,000 visitor to our little blog. Not bad for a site that started back on September 23, 2005. Just two guys from the midwest who happen to have a passion for calling things as we see them, and thought why not let the world know what we think? Hopefully we also open some people's eyes along the way, or at least get people to question 'why?', instead of just following the crowd.

Kemp and I started on this endeavor with the purpose of letting people know our opinion on politics and current events. While we do slant to the left side of the political spectrum, we both consider ourselves to be more or less open to great ideas from either side of the aisle. Hell, we would even settle for a good idea coming out of Washington or even state governments from time to time. We hope that you enjoy what we do and you will keep coming back, why not tell a friend or two ! That way you will have something to talk about amongst yourselves.

So eveyone can relax, we have hit the 4,000 mark in roughly 4 months (not bad) and we have had a visitor from Rhode Island....thanks Wakefield! However, we are only 5 weeks into 2006 and it appears the roller coaster ride is just getting started.

Make sure your seatbelts are fastened and keep your hands and arms inside the car at all times...it looks like the ride is going to get a bit bumpy.

Be good, stay informed....later.
