  •  A correction to your correction. (4.00)

    Yes, it was December 10th, but we slack on weekends so we posted a day early.

    But it was December 10, 2003.

    Judge me on the content of my character, not the diaper on my head.

    •  I stand corrected. No - I >sit< corrected. (4.00)
      I actually knew that, but mistyped.  I freely admit to many "inaccuracies".  To much work to be right all the time.

      I understand.  It's the same as when the 4th of July falls on a Sunday, so there's no mail delivery on Monday the 5th instead, and (some) people get the day off.

      Here's some C&J facts, hopefully more or less "accurate":

      First time there were more than 10 C&J comments:
      December 10, 2003 (12)
      More than 20:      February 6, 2004  (21)
      More than 30:      August 13, 2004   (83)
      More than 100:     October 5, 2004   (118)
      More than 150:     November 9, 2004  (152)  
      More than 200:     November 19, 2004 (230)
      More than 250:     December 1, 2004   (320)
      More than 350:     December 7, 2004   (353)
      More than 400:     December 10, 2004   (492)
      More than 500:     January 14, 2005    (522)

      Records after that:
      540 on January 28, 2005
      541 on February 11, 2005

      Significantly lower since then, for the most part.  We'll see if today's birthday entry beats 541

      •  Wow. (4.00)

        I'll have to rethink my policy of bribi...er, sending 5 bucks to people for every comment.

        •  I'll put this one on your tab (4.00)
          Cheers to Brian Schweitzer, Democratic Governor of Montana, for his snarky comments on the public lands giveaway known as the Pombo Amendment to the House Budget Reconciliation, passed in the wee hours of the morning just before the Thanksgiving break.

          From the Helena (MT) Independent Record:

          A bill that would allow the federal government to sell off some public lands in the West is nothing more than a ``skunk in the shower'' and should be pulled from consideration by Congress, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer said in a telephone conference call Thursday morning.

          His comment came in response to a question as to whether making changes to the bill proposed by U.S. Reps. Richard Pombo, R-Calif., and Jim Gibbons, R-Nev., could make it palatable.

          ``If a skunk comes into the house, you can throw it in the shower and clean it with soap, but it's still going to smell bad,'' Schweitzer said. ``You will not get the stink off this one with a little shower and soap.''

          I'm working on a diary, probably to be posted over the weekend, with more snarky press on this issue.  Cheers to their vigor in going after this one, and the stirred up hornet's nest of (especially) westerners working for its defeat.

        •  600's already been posted (4.00)
          So I'll add a Blue Grouse from the local mountains here for #601 (or 2 or 3?)

        "Significantly lower since then, for the most part.  We'll see if today's birthday entry beats 541"

        This one should be around 565 or so, so I think the snarkfest has been successful!
