OMG, finally found my old password!!!
For those who still remember me, I used to be pretty active in 2004-2005 then less so from then on. Eventually a move, computer change and a divorce all conspired to make me lose my login here. Not that it would make much difference, raising 3 kids and trying to survive GW, 2008 crisis and such left me little time to blog here.
16 years later I’m still here and still a Trusted User. What’s up with that ? I thought if you didn’t rate comments or commented you lost TU status.
My kids who were toddlers are now teens (shudder) and one is starting college. She is even more of a leftie than her mom, 4th generation Dem who will vote for President this year. I’m so proud!
I’m not a stay at home mom anymore, (heh, who could be with the economy we had ?) and not married anymore, though we do get along well. Ariana Huffington style.
I still care about science, protecting minorities, BLM and this current state of affairs. But I saw Kos was “in good hands” and doing great work fighting the right. I saw Meteor Blades, poblano (aka Nate Silver) and a lot of other Kos famous / infamous users grow and make this site into a powerhouse. Some evolved into their own sites and platforms. Others are gone from the net, like me but went down fighting like MSO. Ya’ll did good!
I’m so proud you all and of my low 5 digits userid! I feel I was a tiny part of something good and great. I hope together we can still prevent a Trumpocalypse.
Expect bumping into me on comment threads this year. Let’s give Cheetolini hell like we did with GW and make sure we get the orange disgrace out, like we did with McCain and Romney.
UPDATE: OMG Recommended!!! 185 recs and old timers galore visiting! Thanks guys and gals! I feel so proud !
UPDATE 2: ROFL, I didn’t realize *Rump had paged me. From the comments:
(my user name is a sarcastic comment on how the Law & Order party preaches both but practices neither, as our great FP cartoonist Nick Anderson puts it so well...)
