    I think that was one of the most successful blogathons ever. An incredibly high amount of participants and such great posts all around. The topic allowed such a variety of interpretations that I think you could have done this for two weeks if you’d wanted. Thanks for doing this and enjoy your vacation.

    Marilyn – it was terrific fun not only contributing but reading the other posts. Like many others, I’ll have to search out “Simple Men” just due to that Sonic Youth scene.
    Could I trouble you to update that list of contributors with my own name? I think I just got dropped off due to my initial link on the first day being right next to another Bob (Damn you Westal!).

    Bob, I corrected my omission. Thanks for drawing my attention to it.
    I’m glad you all enjoyed it and picked up some new facts and finds. That’s what makes this Internet-thingy so great – finding your “own kind” all over the world!
