Happy anniversary to me

I've been a staff reporter at The Baltimore Sun for 10 years. Amazing how quickly a decade can fly by.

Here's hoping for another 10 years at least, assuming the newspaper industry still exists at that point.

On that note: Thanks to everyone who subscribes to a newspaper, whichever one it may be. Newspapers' online offerings -- including blogs -- would not be possible without you.

Congrats Jamie!

Such longevity from someone so young!

Congrats Jamie, you consistently run an interesting blog. Well done.

Aw, thanks, semiconscious.

Charlie, I'm in my 30s, which might be young by some standards but feels creaky-old compared with the energy of a toddler. And I get to see that side-by-side comparison every day. :-)

Congrats Jamie! You touch on some interesting topics that people really don't hear about in other places so good on you for bringing them to light. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the kind words, M. More importantly, thanks to you and all the other frequent commenters who keep this blog lively and point me toward interesting stuff!
