One million hits

Sometime in the last few days (it's hard to tell because of the unfortunate Blogger/Blogspot programming meltdown) this little site got its one millionth hit. 

I'm glad this thing has found a little bit of an audience.

Please remember, other people are not your property.  Their property is not your property.  In the words of this guy:

They are not yours to boss around. Their lives are not yours to micromanage. The fruits of their labour are not yours to dispose of.

It doesn't matter how wise or marvelous or useful it would be for other people to do whatever it is you'd like them to do. It is none of your business whether they wear their seatbelts, worship the right god, have sex with the wrong people, or engage in market transactions that irritate you. Their choices are not yours to direct. They are human beings like yourself, your equals under Natural Law. You possess no legitimate authority over them. As long as they do not themselves step over the line and start treating other people as their property, you have no moral basis for initiating violence against them – nor for authorising anyone else to do so on your behalf.

Now I've got to go to work.  It's time to boss some people around. 

The sign was lifted from The Idiot Speaketh and Pedalith site.

Sorry I missed the milestone, but congrats on the achievement. Surely a testament to not only having something to say but having people that appreciate the content.

Congratulations from one garrulous blogging legend to another. A well deserved milestone.

Never underestimate dogged perseverance and the ability to annoy almost everyone. Works every time.
