I just realized that I started this blog one year ago today.
I'll wait while you finish applauding
This blog, my co-bloggers, the great commenters and other like blogs turned out to be the saving grace that made me realize that I wasn't alone in the world after 9/11. The media did a great job of convincing me that everyone believed the lies and made me wonder if I was losing it (like I don't have enough problems). I certainly didn't buy the story that bearded cave men hate our freedoms and now we must blow them up to ensure that we will be safe and free. I may be a lot of things but I'm not stupid.
Anyone who has read this blog for a year has pointed out to me what a raging bi-polar personality I have... as if my shrink didn't already diagnose it. duh. But that's why it's so fun to come and read this blog, I've been told. You never know what position I will take next. Is she an atheist today? Or agnostic? Thank goodness for stable co-bloggers.
I'm so happy to have patricia, Jaye, Petey and Mule as additional writers here these days, and the great commenters, you, that keep me thinking and looking at things differently. I love that people come from different parts of the country/the world and add more perspective to each other's views. This has been great. Thank you.
