1st Blogiversary!

My dear friends: today marks the one year anniversary since the lackluster first posts on this blog. I write today to celebrate this fact, and dedicate a few moments of my (and hopefully your) day to its consideration. But in a larger sense, I cannot now consecrate -- cannot now celebrate -- this blog. For it is you, my friends, fellow bloggers, readers, and commenters, who have already done so. Each time we take one another's thoughts seriously enough to consider them, to roll them around in our minds, to debate them, and each time we respect our friends’ minds enough to expose our opinions to them--it is these times when we truly celebrate the grandness that is Washav Huffy Crew. For it is obvious, if you read the posts I cite above, that this place is nothing if it is not a community of minds and opinions. Indeed, although I celebrate the blog's one year anniversary, its true essence and consciousness did not come into being until a month or two after its birth from the internet's digital womb. It is thus not any single writer's opinion or beautiful writing (despite the delicious prolificacy of some) that makes this blog worth reading and anyone who says so has not grasped the concept that we celebrate here. That concept--a cooperative pluralism--is what makes democracy, debate, and community worth while. If we continue to write in its celebration, I can guarantee that there shall never be a schism, with two separate concepts of washavism and washavaticism. Instead, this blog shall last a thousand years. Long live Washav! Long live Huffy Crew!

Let it be known that I celebrated the Crew on our blogversary by leaving a Scantron post up on the screen of a Blackberry tester at the Verizon Store, Manhasset, NY. Feel the Huff, Long Island!

Something about shit-stained underwear and republicans, probably

Musharraf and the panda animal. Thought it might appeal to a broad sector of the Verizon customer base.

Kushakov, your next task is to infiltrate on of those scrolling marquees at Times Square and get Huffy Crew posts to cycle through, guerilla media style. Then the unsuspecting New York public will be bombarded with penetrating statements like "you are being lied to," "fight the power," and "I really like the idea of local politics but I don't really know what that is, frankly." Oh, and "Austin-5000 eats boogers."
