Now for some housekeeping notes about our masthead:
As paradox noted a few weeks ago, he's our main man these days. (Thank you so much, paradox!) Steve continues to be on sabbatical for a while longer. And today, we welcome Deacon Blues as a new writer for the site.
Also, we want to take this opportunity to thank our readers for all your support, wise input, onery comments, and intelligent conversation throughout the years. Steve started this blog in a moment of great darkness for our country just as the Bush administration was committing our country to a seriously misbegotten war. We cannot express how grateful we are that we found a community that outlasted the Bush madness.
Finally, we can celebrate our return to sanity. Congratulations to all of us!
Here's to the next few years as we work together to search for (and find) solutions to our problems. There are so many serious challenges ahead of us, yet I hope that this blog (both readers and writers) will continue to partake in the debate.
