Congats, you’re a daily read and an invaluable source of info., enlightenment and just plain fun.

Keep up the good work.

Near miss? Whoever compiled that list needs new glasses. American Digest should be in the top ten.

We come for the quality of work, not the size of the audience. You're still number one for thought-provoking and soul-searching clarity. Write on, Vanderleun. Please, write on.

Let me add my wish for your continued success. We need American Digest! Keep on keeping on....

American Digest; Mark Steyn and Iowahawk not in the list of the "Top 100" of conservative blogs??
Then a new list should be started immediately with those three at the very top (bracketed in any order as joint No.1).

You are too, too kind to the compilers Gerard. Never saw you as a humble dude, just not pushy. You reach the parts that other blogs do not reach. And I'm sure you realise that, too, which is no doubt why you spend so much time producing your magic. Keep the aspidistra flying.

There is a certain handicap imposed on the use of
subtlety, and words of more than two syllables.

Vive la difference!... you ARE the Man.
