5 million, counting slowly

5 million, American. Image from Instagain, whatever that is.

Is the heyday of the blog over? Or did I just foul it up?

At one time Millard Fillmore’s bathtub got about 2,000 hits per day. In the last 16 months, that’s dwindled to just under 1,000 per day.

Still, at that rate, the Bathtub should overflow with the 5 millionth hit, sometime in the next 5 days. It’s funny, but if I counted spam we’d be over 8 million already. 100 spam comments for every real comment, approximately.

No wonder elections turn out so oddly.

For 5 million sincere hits, I thank you, readers, and thank you especially you faithful readers.

Would you tell your friends to come check it out?

Signs of life: Sea monster in the neighborhood

Jamelle Bouie is just shooting stuff around the neighborhood. Love this one.

Jamelle Bouie found this in the neighborhood. No, I'm not sure which neighborhood, but clearly it's got some great neighbors.

A more interesting neighborhood, perhaps, than most of us have. Or maybe not.

What’s in your neighborhood? Have you recorded it on film (or electrons), just for history’s sake? Why not?
