MILESTONE

I am about to go for my morning walk, and not too long after I return, Google will record the four millionth page view for this blog.  Even after we deduct my obsessive clicks and those of S. Wallerstein, that still leaves at least three million.  :)

Not bad for an old second tier philosophy professor.

Keep on clicking!

That is an impressive achievement - especially for a Marxists-atheist-anarchist.

Now, might it be possible that your post-academy career as a blogger has had a greater
impact on humanity than all the years, classes, papers, and personal interactions in the academy?
(Hard to tabulate really given that Career No. 1 explains largely Career No. 2, but a pretty good
second act, notwithstanding.) Imagine how long and how impactful your YouTube presence will be.

You're just a kid.

Ah Jerry, thank you. These young kids nowadays don't appreciate us old guys. Why, when we were young, we had to walk ten miles in the snow without shoes just to get to school.

....and I walked holding a hot potato in each hand to keep my hands warm and then ate the potatoes for lunch!

- actually, what always impressed me...and this was in MA...was how the grade school girls managed to survive walking in
20 degree weather with just skirts and bare legs! -with socks and shoes, of course :)

We had to recycle our own feces for breakfast and crawl on our hands and knees to school, where we were invariably punished for ingratitude, insufficient reverence toward the sum total of human knowledge, and tardiness. And that was in a decent neighborhood.

Is that so? You think you didn't have a pot to piss in? I had to use my mother's water bowl, then crawl backwards forty miles in molten lava to the seminary, where the nuns beat me about the head with my charred schoolbooks. But I did spend my recess immersed in Bolgia Two of the Eighth Circle so my education wasn't utterly lost on me, I'll grant you that. I'm still paying down the student loan in my 95th year.
