Thu Oct 27, 2022, 05:21 PM

For my 10,000th post, I feel like I should be saying something profound.

As the number was approaching, I have been trying to come up with the right ideas but have not found anything earth shattering or that hadn't been said before by others.

What I can say is that DU is very important to me. I am a rare Democrat in ruby red south Arkansas. Reading DU every night keeps me grounded in the knowledge that we few Democrats here in the piney woods are not alone.

I have made friends that I will never meet. I have had valuable discussions with well informed people on important issues. I also enjoy the lighter side of DU in the Lounge. There are frequent posters for whom I cannot leave posts unopened.

I appreciate the work done by EarlG, the administrators, and the MIRT in keeping DU a safe and sane place for discussion.

Thanks DU.

17. Congratulations,Tom

DU is about keeping ahead of the insanity from the other side. Before I found DU, early on in the tfg regime, I wondered if anyone else felt as hopeless, depressed and disgusted, as I did. When I found DU, I was able to embrace the truth of my observations an I had a forum of kindred democrats, to work on a solution. I've become active in organizing and getting out the vote in my precinct and the community at large.

but I won the Pulitzer Prize with my 10,000th DU post. So you can strive for that sort of distinction with your 20,000th post, Tom!



Congrats on 10,000. Keep 'em coming!
