Quackers! This is the Daily Duck's 500th post!

Thanks to fellow Duckians, Brit, Skipper and Oroborous for helping the DD acheive this momentous milestone. Thanks also to Peter, David, Harry, Susan's Husband, Bret, Monix, Joe Shropshire, Mike Beversluis and all the other regular and irregular commenters and lurkers. Here is the Daily Duck's inaugural post from October, 2004:
Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Daily Duck! The Duck will cover a variety of topics, from politics, religion, science and philosophy to popular culture, history and economics. The Duck has no expertise in any of these fields, and is a rank amateur in the world of journalism, publishing and social commentary. Nevertheless, this blog is dedicated to the proposition that the interested amateur has an important role to play in making the professional "experts" who operate the levers of power in our society accountable to the rules of common sense. Well, enough quacking, let's get cracking!

Congratulations! How are the ad revenue millions now?

As ToE has become more prolific, I fear my contributions to DD have sadly declined recently.

By contrast, it seems that last August I was churning all sorts of nonsense out here and generally bringing down the intellectual tone of the place.

That seems aeons ago. Blog time is much faster than real time.

Congratulations! May the next 500 be as interesting, provocative and informative as the last.

Thank you! David, blogger shows a count when you create a new post.

Monix, I will try. I've learned a lot from the commenters, especially those who disagree with me. So don't be shy about letting me have it when you think I'm all wet.

Hearty congrats and many thanks. It's been great, although, when it comes to their personal intellectual and spiritual development, I question whether the Duckians really do believe in progress. But it's early yet, no?

My sense is that the experts have wasted a wonderful opportunity.
