Dear Commons Community,
Yesterday morning at about 9:00 a.m., the counter on Tony’s Thoughts reached six million visitors. When I started this blog in November 2009, I never imagined that there would be such interest in what I had to say. Actually I had assumed I would blog for a few months and then move on. I still cannot fathom that in the past nine and a half years, I have made more than 4,400 posts.
I thank colleagues and friends who have made suggestions on topics and issues for my blog. I thank Matt Gold and the staff at the CUNY Commons who have provided this wonderful resource for us to share our interests with one another. I thank my wife, Elaine, who has to listen to me in the morning about what I might want to write and blog about. Most of all, I thank all of you who have taken the time to stop by and read my posts.
