Greetings, AndrewSullivan.com Readers!

Thanks to a cursory nod from Andrew Sullivan last night, there will probably be a spike of traffic here today. "Now that it's gotten to him," says a web-savvy friend, "I predict we'll see someone writing a snarky essay for Slate or Salon on the topic in the next week or two. You may get your 320kbps*900 of fame after all." Gosh, it's all I ever wanted, and more!

My vlogging debut was a one-off affair, recorded in one take, that took all of about two minutes of effort. And yet at this rate it is going to have more effect than twenty years of writing.

Like the man says says in Ecclesiastes: "I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."

Yeah verily, dude. Yeah verily.

Hmm, at least my best day ever at Mostly Harmless was just words--a few announcing the advent of the WAAGNFNP. Just sad. Speaking of which, when will we be seeing your first post there? ;)

Ah, but recall Ring Lardner's famous, wise response to Ecclesiastes: "The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong -- but that's the way the smart money bets."
