Been such a weird few days, personally and with the big story down below, that I completely forgot to mention that last Saturday, June 26, was the second anniversary of Half-Bakered! Here's the momentous first post:
This is a test. Had this been real, it would have been taxed by now.
Auspicious, eh? Well...remember, it was the height of the Income Tax Wars. Those were heady days, when government and its lackeys in the media were shockingly reminded of who's in charge. A reminder of the power of the people not seen since, well, the civil rights days.

The next post, though, was a takedown of the Flyer's Jackson Baker and the whole media misrepresentation of the anti-tax protests in Nashville. That sounds more like the H-B you know and love.

More than 1300 posts -- over 400,000 words and 20,000 visitors -- later, here I am, still blogging. Thanks to everyone who ever dropped by, gave Half-Bakered a mention, put up a link, added me to their blogroll, or mentioned me to a friend. I appreciate all of you and count you dear. Watching Memphis, the Mid-South and Tennessee develop another communications landscape has been a real boost to my spirit.
