If you check the little counter under "Site Statistics" in the right-hand column, you'll see that sometime today or tomorrow this blog will pass the milestone of half a million page views. I had no idea when I began that I would persist this long (nearly 3 1/2 years now) or reach this large an audience. I am grateful to all of you who read the blog, especially to the happy few who have been here since the beginning. I don't promise to continue forever, but I think you can count on my being here at least until the 2012 elections. After that, it will be time to reassess. Thanks for reading, and special thanks to those of you who have taken the time to comment, send leads, or point me toward sources of information.
