Milestone Missed

Just noticed that last Friday marked 10 years since my very first post. Certainly far more people will read it here today than read it when it was originally published as I had no readers then.


This post today is the 4,287th. There have been 35,225 comments. I calculate that there have been a total of about 2.75 million page views. Thanks for reading and contributing with your comments, tips and submissions.

    Wow! Cool Dave! I wonder what our tax rate compared to all those towns is today. It seems like Lake Como is in much better shape today thanks to sharing, but I too worry about sharing services for the same reasons you do.

    Way to go, Dave. This blog helped topple a tyrant. Ten years of speaking truth to power and providing a platform for the people. Congrats!

    Dave. Quite an achievement. Your blog has given us information and transparency, not to mention a place to vent. Thank you. And thanks to Karen and your family for sharing you with us. I know how much time and energy you put into this blog. You’ve always tried to be fair and balanced. Belmar owes you a debt of gratitude. 10 years! You’re the man!!
