Public Nuisance

Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.

The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.
-Ronald Reagan

I would like to wish Rosh Hashanah tovah and a joyous 5763 to all my readers and fellow bloggers.

The Nuisance celebrated the new year by recording its 10,000th visit on Friday night. Number 10,000 came here from Atrios, which is appropriate. In addition to blogrolling me, Atrios has been kind enough to link to this blog several times. Due to those links and his deserved high traffic, Atrios is the number one referrer to this site.

I'm grateful to all those who read this site, the many readers who have sent me encouraging e-mail, and all of my fellow bloggers who have linked this site and sent readers my way - even ones who may have recently demoted me from "Daily Read" to "Regular Read".

The Norah Vincent article below was quite popular, and brought me my first link love from Media Whores Online - also links from Ted Barlow, Win Fitzpatrick, and Jeanne d'Arc. I am pleased with the linkage and kind words, but despite MWO's suggestion this blog most definitely is not and will not become "Norah Vincent Watch". I'm so over that that I won't even mention this artful Jeff Jarvis trashing of Vincent's most recent column on 9/11 that I found on Yglesias.

The theme of the Public Nuisance will continue to be what it has always been: "So what do I feel like saying today?" Is this worth my time to write or yours to read? Hey, 10,000 readers might possibly not be wrong.
