No. 9, No. 9, No. 9, No. 9…

As of this weekend, Ghost in the Machine is now nine years old. [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.] With an incoming Obama administration, an expanded Democratic Congress, and, perhaps most startling, the Knickerbockers actually two games over 500, it’s looking harder than usual to find things to complain about around here. Even amid the twilight realm of the ABD, that faint orange glow in the distance is looking less like troubling fires ahead and more and more like an approaching dawn. Nevertheless, whatever the future holds, GitM (hopefully) rolls on. As always, whether you’re a longtime reader or just a lost/adventurous Googler, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Happy birthday, GitM.

    The Knicks thing is a welcome surprise.

    The Jazz started off good, but we broke the Russian (again) and D-Will.

  11. Congratulations! I always find your blog interesting and entertaining to read (love those movie reviews). It will be a sad day when GitM does come to end.

  12. Kevin, we’ve been here for 8 of the 9, and followed your travails and successes at Columbia, and the 8 years of smugness and incredible decisions of Dubya.. Let’s hope that our President elect will lead us out of the damage and that your 10th year brings the fudd and great opportunity for you. Hope Gillian is well, and all else is in order.
