13,000,000

Thirty minutes ago, our blog passed the 13,000,000 view mark. The fact that we passed 12 million recently shows how fast the blog continues to grow. Congratulations everyone.

We are expanding at a remarkable rate not just in the United States but abroad. In the last twenty four hours, our five biggest international participants became from England, Canada, Australia, Sweden, and India (in that order with England as the number one contributing country).

I wanted to thank our weekend bloggers: David Drumm, Mark Esposito, Gene Howington, Michael Spindell, Eliane Magliaro, Mike Appleton, and Larry Rafferty. I wanted to particularly thank our contributors. This blog offers a unique mix of views from people committed to civil discussion of the major issues of our time. While we often disagree, we offer a place for reasonable and respectful debate. I am incredibly grateful to all of our regulars. In the last 24 hours, the most active commentators were Idealist707, Matt Johnson, Nick Spindelli, Malisha, Dredd, Elaine M, and Darren Smith.

Thanks everyone and congratulations on reaching another milestone!

    NO MATHS! I know it’s not exactly math but it’s getting awful close. You have been warned 🙂

    idealist,

    Cheney is a borg!”
    ========================

    Kinda late return, but…..
    I wonder when I’ll have the “pleasure” of seeing him grasp
    his scalp and pull off the mask. What will we see?

  3. Professor Turley,

    I was so stunned to see my name mentioned that haven’t had the courage to acknowledge it through a thank-you.
    It is an honor to be here. Sincerely. And “grattis” as we say in Sweden.

  4. I agree with Elaine that woman need more Voice or Bark in my terms. itchinBayDog sitting in for BarkinDog who is nursing a dog bite in the posterior.

  5. “I bet Gene has suffered a couple of brain hernias for his efforts.”

    No hernias, Elaine. I never lift more than I can carry and I always lift from the anterior cingulate cortex so as not to damage my amygdala or strain my medulla oblongata. Safety first.

    I’m honored to be mentioned. I really mean that. Thanks, Professor Turley.

  7. Blouise, I am doing it at a slow pace. Having a bunch done for the next two weeks then no more until after the holidays.

  8. Elaine,

    “Being a nanny granny while cleaning out our house and making preparations for moving has been exhausting.”

    You have my sincere appreciation for the exhausting part. I simply have to tend the child while her parents do all the work. 😉

  9. SwM,

    Get a hotel room while they’re there. I hate having remodeling, in our case restoration, done.

    Follow-up with email as to where you are going to look.

  10. Excuse me for intruding. My thoughts you know…..

    When will brain surgery make it possible for politicians to think? Romney needs one.

    And I am a glad recipient of a double bypass and a metal valve, not to speak of the pacemaker.

    And Cheney is still running around on his pump, I guess.

    The sun shines on the good and the bad equally said Jesus.

  11. Blouise,

    We passed papers on the house a couple of weeks ago. My daughter and son-in-law have already moved in. My husband and I are still cleaning out our house and hope to have some work done on our new residence before we move in. Being a nanny granny while cleaning out our house and making preparations for moving has been exhausting.

    I am so happy to hear about your granddaughter! The grandson of two of our good friends had heart surgery when he was an infant. He is fine now.

  12. Blouise, Congratulations on all fronts. My daughter made that cake two years Christmas. I finally got some workers in to get the house ready to be sold.
