10 years a DUer. Thanks DU, and thanks Skinner!!!

With the holidays, I totally blew by my 10 years date that happened a couple weeks ago - Dec 23, 2004.

I had planned on writing a long op about all of the changes and permutations of DU over the years, but those that have been here that long are aware of how this place has changed.

In the dark days of Dean's campaign's demise, Air America and DU were the two shining lights that made me think things could turn around. Sadly, I am still waiting 10 years later.

I hope to be here to see the pendulum swing left again.

Thank you Skinner.

3. CONGRATS!

 

I got here in 2001 after Duhbya's appointment as King.

So many of us have grown up and older on DU. And the DU admins - once free-wheeling whippersnappers, have gone on to get hitched and have little Democrats (of the two and four-legged furry variety).

Can't believe it's been that long!

Olde Tymer DUer hugs!

4. Congratulations! DU is terrifc and the best kept secret the Left has. If I hadn't got Thom

Hartmann's day program on Dish TV three years ago I would have Never known about it. Don't see DU mentioned anywhere which is very strange. Wish I'd known around 2006-07, life would be different. But better late than never!

6. Congrats! I missed mine too--

December 26. I remember it like yesterday. I was sitting on my living room floor with my 14 year old son who handed me his cell phone to talk to this guy he was working with on election fraud in Michigan. Andy Stephenson said to me, "...you're his mom? Are you on DU? Get your ass over there now!"

And so I did....


(And I miss my friend Andy still.)

7. I think a lot of people showed up in 2004, not surprisingly.

I know I did.
