I'll probably be posting later today & tomorrow but I wanted to get this out of the way while I knew for certain I'd be near a keyboard.

Tomorrow - January 25th - will mark two years for me as a blogger. Here's a link to last year's bloggiversary post.

For the helluvit here's an interview the lovely miss Annika did of me a while back.

I don't really have a "best of" section to point to, but there are some thing you might find interesting (if you missed them the first go around) in the Essays & Such category as well as the Hewit Arguments category, the Hobbesian Arguments category & the X Arguments category. (Hey - arguing is what I do best - or most often it seems.)

Thanks for your patronage. I do appreciate everyone who drops by - even those who disagree with me on certain issues. It's probably in bad taste to request your own bloggiversary present but there is something I'd like:

This past year I went shooting a handful of times. Never made it hunting. A large part of that was because I was blogging. What I want this year is simple: I want to be able to spend more time putting lead downrange than fighting (albeit through my meager means) idiotic gun control proposals. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated beyond words. It'd be nice if I could spend more time writing about gunsmithing or target shooting than gun laws & policies.

So ride your congress critters very hard. Make sure they understand that you & everyone you know will not tolerate any more gun control laws on the local, state or federal level. Hell, make them afraid for their jobs if they don't start repealing some of the laws we have now.

It's not very likely to happen that way but if you'd do one thing for me (& yourselves) this year then do that: put just a little more effort into stopping gun control laws.

Again I much appreciate you dropping by. Thanks to all of you who've read, linked, commented &/or argued with me & many thanks to the North State Blogs; the Rebel Alliance; the Munuvians & of course Pixy Misa.

Congrats on the anniversary, and well done, my friend.

I have a little local activism in mind for next month. Details a bit later.

Have been enjoying your blog for probably close to your origins. Certainly enjoy. And hey, I'm really over the hill at almost 60. And, yes, I drive my congress people as crazy as possible. From your interview with Annika, I must be considered an absolutist. I base all my political considerations on gun issues. Thanks for all your efforts. Don't let us lose you.
