My fellow Abikans,
Our Man is truly humbled that, in this time of both political and economic global incompetence, when the nincompoops and the charlatans who got us into this pappekak are now promising to get us out of it with our money that we haven't even earned yet; that you the People - Democrat and Republican, gay and straight, medical doctor and non-medical doctor, black and white, yellow, green and read all over - have chosen to come together and propel this shining beacon upon a dunghill of a blog past the 4,000-hit mark.
But Our Man couldn't have got where he is, standing with his eyes peering into the middle distance of the future, with left leg in, left left leg out, shaking it all about, without the vision of Our Founders. Our Man is not talking of the uber-bloggers with their technocrati name-dropping connections, but the little guys in pursuit of their piece of the happiness pie. We're talking The Ghosts of this world; the selfless Dr Datsun Kildare who never lets a post lack a comment; The Penguin who corrects Our Man's German; and Motsowhatsit whose Dutch ability is matched only by his eye for amusing cock-ups in print; and let's not forget Winchester Whisperer, who surely is far too smart a cookie for these parts, oh and Armchair Asia who adds a feminine touch to the otherwise masculine world of talking bollocks.
Blog bless you all.
Oh, and the odd link from James at Japan Probe and MTC at Shisaku, didn't hurt either.
