Break Out the Fireworks!
Now, I'm a bigger fan of (2) than (1). In this issue of the Post, however, we do a bit of bragging on those wonderful folks who started all this back in the last millennium. 1999 was the last millennium, so there. Amy Pawloski's starting a series of interviews with some of them. This is a fun way to catch up on all the history – at a safe distance from some of these people, who may be dangerous. Speaking of dangerous, Bluebottle, who was around back then (he's ancient), remembers the day the Post went hardcopy. Read all about it. We've dredged up some factoids for you to put the momentous occasion in contemporary perspective. Think you know all? Try the quiz. We've even got a retro cartoon to show you – Wowbagger's first in the Post.
The Post isn't looking backward, though. We have new Stuff, too. We immodestly think we just get better. We've got humour and advice and a review and splendid wildlife. We aren't going to run out of ideas anytime soon.
So keep reading, and keep writing. Raise your to the next 14 years!
Witty? Prove it.
