Thanks for all your support through the years.  We began eighteen years ago, in a galaxy far away.  “I am the world crier, & this is my dangerous career… I am the one to call your bluff, & this is my climate.” —Kenneth Patchen (1911-1972)

  1. Congratulations, Eliot! Been “Following You There” for a good 14 or 15 of your 18 years, and you’re one of the sites I value most deeply, and check most often. And my clicks are direct views, I don’t use RSS or Atom. My only wish is a small one, that you posted even more often, but you do an amazing job. The FmH community was an oasis in the desert of the Bush years, and now even more in the desert of Il Douche (as we call him here, with a tip of the middle finger to Il Ducé). I wish you many more years of good community, and good health and happiness. -Ray
