Rosh Hashanah Greetings from the Gateway to Ground Zero

That was pretty close to the very first post title on this here eminence gris of blogtopia (yes, I know skippy coined the term) which will celebrate its third anniversary on September 18, 2004. In September, 2001, as now, the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah falls shortly after the 11th. Then, as now, the world faces some anxious times and grave uncertainties.
Quite a bit has happened in the last three years, to us, to this City, to this Nation, and this World. Some of that has been discussed in this column. I hope it has been enlightening for some of you, entertaining for most of you, and worth the trouble of finding us here for… any of you.
We’ve made some great friends in this medium, and hope to make many more. Lots of fun, lots of challenges, lots of laughs, some upsetting moments– kind of like life itself, and yet not, somehow. In the end, for my own personality, a hobby where I can mouth off and pretend I’m smart is just not one to be missed. I’ve certainly enjoyed this immensely.
L’shanah tovah, y’all.
