The LuLac Edition #2,000, March 28th, 2012


I’ve always been a milestone guy. I think if you stop counting, you stop caring. Your stats are a reflection of who you are, how you play the game, how you work the project.
Today, LuLac is presenting its 2,000th edition. Bloggers call them posts but I’ve tried to resist that since starting this site in May of 2006. Every day we try to give you an Edition. A recap of political and pop culture news in our corner of the world. Our goal is to give you a mini newscast or editorial piece every day. Hopefully it will be news you can use, disagree with, get angry over or better yet, have a discussion with someone about something I wrote. We’ve been told some of our editions are too long and wordy. Some days, there’s a lot of news. If you want to keep track, use the scroll button or get out a pencil. Some days, there’s just nothing but the anger and fury. But most days, especially here in LuLac land, the things we write about are so incredibly unbelievable, that I sometimes feel I’m in some type of 60s induced haze. As my good friend Shadoe Steele constantly says, “You can’t make this stuff up”. How true.
A huge thanks to all of my readers and posters, to the many friends I’ve met along this journey and to the fine folks who constantly support me in this endeavor. (You guys know who you are! Thanks!)
Now we’re past 2,000. As that great American philosopher Ferris Bueller once said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”. With the help of our readers and providence, we’ll keep looking around at all of this delicious political garbage……so none of us will miss it. On to 3,000!

I would like to congratulate Mr. Yonki on his 2000th edition. It is indeed a monumental accomplishment and I wish you many thousands more. Keep up the good work young man.
The business of this classroom goes forward....

As this Friday's blogfest approaches I was alarmed by an article in a local "free" magazine (a publication, by the way, the sometimes runs pornographic advertisements) concerning the event. As I was expecting a gathering of minds (or what can pass as minds) discussing the important issues of the day, I was alarmed. It seems that this shendig is concerned with a diverse amount of subjects.
It is not my interest to listen to little Suzy complaining about how long she had to wait to dry her nails. Or big shot Johnny bragging about his new sports car. In short, many of these blogs concern people who are filled with an enormous amount of egotistical drive and are representative of the "I am special" liberal educational mindset.
I can tolerate the political blogs, as I am interested in the subject. What I cannot tolerate is a group of spoiled malcontents who are only concerned with one thing themselves.
To all of those "ME" bloggers: You are not special, you are not even passable. I have no use for you.
But, if I am to be fair, I must admit that you have no use for me.
So, class, I must humbly refuse your invitation to attend this years blogfest.
And I would advise Mr. Yonki and the other organizers to limit next Fall's meeting to intelligent debate and discussion. Perhaps then, I shall see fit to grace the halls of Rooney's pub.
Then again, it is always possible that the old psychological studies part of this academian will be intrigued to appear. Who can say????
Something to think about this morning....
CLass Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yonk, I'm not sure who I am so when you say :you knw who you are," By he way, I'm glad your service changed the code word to something more user friendly. Thanks for the effort you and Gort put into causing the change.

Many, many more Yonk. You are one of the few sane people that respects a point, makes a point and can respect true differences of opinion.

I have been following you since Day 1. Your site has grown in those 6 years. The last year and 1/2 have been incredible., You have taken inelligent stands on the issues and have been taking a take no prisoners attitude with your writing. My motto is, let them prove they aren't corrupt. I think you've been embracing that. Good job.

Dave, thanks for all of your hard work every day. You are a gifted writer and tolerant individual putting up with the likes of some of your posters. Not mentioning any names but PMC comes to mind.

Wow. And I bet if you check back, there is very little duplication of other news articles. Sure you use great reporters like Mike Buffer and Bill O'Boyle as references but we can always count on your "take" on thing. Many more Yonki.
