... or it will be if that damn Tyler Nixon doesn't post something while I'm finishing it.
Delaware Libertarian has now been around since November 2007, and when I started this blog not only did I not have any idea how to embed html links, I had no idea if anybody would ever read it. (There are a few people who persistently remind me that they see no good reason to read it now.)
But thanks to the first and second Brian, to Tyler, and (occasionally) to mat marshall, we've hung in there and done our part to generate debate in the blogosphere.
For anniverary's sake, here's the first post (in late November 2007) that I felt really proud of: Eating an Atheist Turkey.
It is, ironically, still relevant eighteen months later, as proponents of SB 27 keep trying to outlaw both gay marriage and civil unions, while the Prop 8 mess in California shows the continuing ignorant strength of certain types of religion in public life.
Besides: I doubt mat has ever read this one, and I think he needs to see an empassioned defense of the rights, intellectual contributions, and civil liberties of atheists by a professed theist (me).
Here's the other early post that I hope somebody would remember, from January 2008: Dana's Child. The interaction over Dana Garrett's son and my daughter was the first time the two of us really connected as human beings, and we established a lasting (even if occasionally prickly) friendship between a libertarian and a progressive that has led to many good discussions and lots more agreement that either of us ever expected.
I won't engage in any more looking back: there are plenty of items on everybody's plate that require looking forward.
And since the government on all levels still too often refuses to discuss the tough questions or the difficult decisions, I guess bloggers will continue to jump pell-mell into the void.
Thanks to everybody for reading along so far. Hope you decide to keep hanging around.
