Happy Birthday To Us
This coming Saturday, November 26, World Wide Webers will be one year old.
A lot has happened since this blog was launched. (Click on "Birth of a Blog" near the top of the righthand column for a look back at those bleak times.) Unfortunately, the party in power in the federal government has not changed. But a president who one year ago was crowing about the "political capital" he believed he'd created during his re-election campaign is now reeling from a seemingly never-ending string of scandals, dropping in the polls, and finally being challenged by a skeptical press. Even the Democrats in Congress are starting to show a little backbone. All because of World Wide Webers. (Well, mainly.)
We're happy to report that a growing number of people have made World Wide Webers a regular stop on their Internet cruises. Readership has been steadily increasing over the past several months, and November is on track to set another new high, with close to 2,000 visitors. And based on comments we've received both on- and offline, we know that the quality of our readership is far more impressive than the quantity. Thank you, and help yourself to a slice of cake (pictured above).
(By the way, try Googling images of "birthday cake" sometime. The number and variety of pictures generated is astounding. I came across a photo of an enormous tiered cake decorated for the 80th birthday of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, a remarkable number of cakes for dogs [often shaped like bones], and such creepy images as a girl's Sweet Sixteen cake decorated with the Playboy bunny logo.)
During the coming year, we'll try to make World Wide Webers an even more stimulating place to visit. Maybe by this time next year we'll be celebrating a new look in Congress. But whatever the news may bring, we hope to chew it over thoughtfully and entertainingly with you.
