Well, Waferinos, we did it: in terms of page views, we just crossed the 2 million mark. As most of you know, we are coming up on the 10th anniversary of this blog in April, but I thought I should pause for another milestone before that.
When the blog was 1st launched, everyone laughed. "It'll never fly!" they cried, forgetting that roughly 100 years before that, people were saying the same thing at Kitty Hawk. But the Wright Brothers went aloft, and so did we. Nearly 10 years later, who's laughing?
Of course, one of the challenges we faced was the trollfoons, but like cockroaches (a perfect description of them), they were mostly crushed out of existence. Their lives, after all, are based on Hegel's "negative identity," in other words on opposition; this gives them their raison d'etre
, poor shmucks; they affirm nothing. Anyway, they are not very bright, but most of them finally migrated to other blogs, having very little success here. The dumber ones have stayed around, sadly knocking at the door, hanging on to this flimsy, tragic self-definition. There are very few of these left; all one can do is shake one's head and sigh. This is non-life masquerading as life, but chances are they'll die before they understand this. As I said, dumber than dumb.
Meanwhile, the blog evolved into the highest state of consciousness known to the blogosphere, if not the entire galaxy, and here we are, in all our glory. Wafers forever! I salute you! A toast: To the next 10 years!
ps: As promised, new article to follow within the next few days.
