BAGRAM A.F.B., Afghanistan — Today we passed 6 megahits with a Click Heard Round The World. I’m fairly sure it wasn’t a rocket impact. Or an aircraft cracking up in the distance.

Da-duh, duh duh, da-duh, duh duh. . .

Is it fair to call this blog’s eclectic mix of caffeine, politics, social commentary, nicotine, patriotism, sophomoric humor, spirituality, abrasive gonzo hijinks and news bionic? Maybe not.

Nevertheless, in a world that seems like a test pilot doing an impression of a crumbled beer can rolling through the credits of a 1970’s TV show, the blogosphere has been an essential outlet for me. Wombat, too, I hope. (Get better, man.)

Da-duh, duh duh, da-duh, duh duh. . .

One is motivated by a deep love of liberty and country, which is a bit different than Stacy’s fundamental interest in eating. Our non-approach to a working relationship is an anti-chemistry that manages not to explode despite itself. I flatter myself that I’m a better writer for all this fun.

And then there is the cast of thousands in the blogosphere. Not only do our readers make the blog itself worthwhile, but they restore faith that the country isn’t completely shot. It’s not important that one agree with everyone on everything.

No, we’re just one more unit in the Army of Davids, striving against Socialist odds to answer the Franklin challenge:

“A Republic, if you can keep it.”

And, as an added bonus, corny sound effects:
Da-duh, duh duh, da-duh, duh duh. . .
