It Went Without Saying
August 13, 2009
Somehow, it slipped my mind and escaped my notice and slid by all unbeknownst that this weblog reached its Sixth Anniversary some six weeks ago, on July 2, 2009.
Looking back over old posts to confirm the correct date and the proper age to report here, I rediscovered that I was already punning on our 44th President nearly five years ago, when he was but a very junior Senator-elect. Google evidence suggests I was the first to come up with that particular pun, for what it's worth.
You can tell that that post is an old one because two out of three of the hyperlinks in it are dead, a Web-based memento mori of sorts:
We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a 404 Not Found error.
