Life at Fiddy

Gentle McBoners,

A couple of days ago McBone quietly surpassed the 50 billion hit mark, making us by far the most important cultural phenomenon since canned ravioli.  That's all thanks to you (and me obsessively refreshing every 30 seconds), and your continued allegiance to a blog that cut its teeth defending social justice.  We've kept up that important work and remain bound to our mission of crushing evil wherever it rears its ugly head.

We've packed a lot of crap into this fucker over the years.  Always we seek ways we can expand our boundaries in a quest to build a more peaceful, inclusive future.  Still, we have our limitations, and there are some things that McBone will never contain:

Advertisements.  We vow that this operation will never be driven by capitalism in any way, ever.

Baby blogging

Emulsified eggs and oil

Heat trapping gasses

Tax cuts for trillionaires


Celebrations of Derek Jeter milestones

I could use this space to opine further on why health care is a right in any humane nation, or why Cleveland is the greatest city on earth, or what it will take for that city to win a title, or why marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman--except when it isn't, or how our earth is going to whither and die unless we do something about it, but instead I think I'll take a time out to say thanks! to anyone who has ever taken the time to read a post since we got this ball rolling one cold February morn back in aught-seven.

Your first post was like the Velvet Underground's first album. Only 7 people read it, but we all started blogs.

Congratulations. You're not just the wind beneath my wings, you're the wings.
