Seven years! (And they said it wouldn't last!)

This blog is now seven years old.

And lo and behold, the "Culture War" has not only not ended, it's become virtually impossible to define. Which makes my "work" easier and harder at the same time.

That silly thing at the top still says "End the Culture War by Restoring Classical Values." It was meant as tongue-in-cheek, as gentle satire, but sometimes my tongue gets stuck in my cheek, and I take myself and others too seriously.

What I have learned in these seven years is that "End the Culture War by Restoring Classical Values" only means that this blog is in constant need of Restoration. Indefinitely a work in progress.

Many thanks to everyone who has visited these pages over the years.

(I include readers, friends, enemies, critics, commenters, lurkers, jokers, voyeurs, and anyone else I might have left out -- which is about as inclusive as I can get!)

And many more. I enjoy you and Simon as the voice of reason and common sense on the net. I'm not certain it is complimentary to note how frequently I agree with you two.

Except for the Wolverines, of course.

How bout those Flyers?

Seven years? A common law marriage!

It's been fun reading. I like this place because you get the silly with the serious, all mixed up.

Don't let Brett's comment get you down.

Thanks, everyone.

But Brett, aren't you forgetting about the Seven Year Itch?

And here I thought it was going to be a post about shoe making.

No shoe throwing from me. Just hugs and kisses. I'm honored to be a part of this vibrant place.

It goes without saying that I'm honored that you're a part of this vibrant place.

Hell, you're at the core of what makes it vibrate!

Just 14 more years and we can take your blog out drinking.

We'd better start putting together a list of libertarian cocktails.
