As I was about to shut down the computer for the night I did some quick math, checked our archives, and realized that today is the third anniversary of Potpourri for $500. So Happy Anniversary to us! Little did I think that three years on we would have a multi-writer masthead, all of whom have posted at least twice.
I would like to thank my blogging colleagues -- yes, even JJV -- for providing our readers, who I also want to thank, with plenty to think about over the past 618 posts, starting here. I especially want to thank our maniple* of commenters for engaging in lively discourse or, failing that, clever one-off remarks.
On a specific level, thanks to EMM for indirectly inspiring this post's title.
*We don't have enough for a legion or even a cohort, but we are a happy few nonetheless.
