Numbers and Figures

Sometime today, the ticker will record its 30,000th Visitor. Though these milestones are becoming more frequent, they astonish me more and more.

30K seems a good marker at which an outlet earns "critical mass" status. These words are being read in very interesting places, and I pray the exposure doesn't inhibit me... too much. I'm not the Establishment type.

Readership is growing at a constant clip -- and in the dead of summer, no less. Up 37% in July and 36% for August, so far. Knight-Ridder would kill for a 73% jump, no?

It took 22 days to get from 10 to 20 and now 16 days from 20 to 30.... Who knows where things'll go next? Well, if I can keep up.

Keep the feedback a-comin'.

I just can’t believe all the things people say -- controversy
Am I black or white? am I straight or gay? -- controversy
Do I believe in god? do I believe in me? -- controversy
Controversy controversy
I can’t understand human curiosity -- controversy
Was it good for you? was I what you wanted me to be? -- controversy
Do you get high? does your daddy cry? -- controversy

Do I believe in god? do I believe in me?
Some people wanna die so they can be free

Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever

Love him, love him baby

Listen
People call me rude, I wish we were all nude
I wish there was no black and white, I wish there were no rules

Do I believe in god? do I believe in me? let me tell ya...
Some people wanna die so they can be free
(I said) life is just a game, we’re all just the same...don’t ya wanna play?
