On Monday January 6 2003 this blog had its first entry

And that entry was from letters written through December 2002.

It has been 13 years and 4,338 posts. A ride if any.

If all entries had an individual page start I guess we would be talking around 6,000 pages. Maybe a few hundred more. Depending on the font chosen.

13 is my favorite prime number and apparently a kabbalistic one considering what is in store for next year.

And it is fitting that this anniversary comes one day after the opposition started on its way to liquidate the Chavez inheritance of corruption, looting and mismanagement.

    I can't remember exactly when I first started following your blog but it's been a long time.

    Keep up the good work.

    There is no way to thank you for this enormous work you have done but I am selfish and keep expecting more from you everyday. And you are getting better!

Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the fourth day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the basic rules. I will be ruthless in erasing, as well as those who replied to any off rule comment.

Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
