Somehow I Passed A Milestone

Which isn't to be confused with passing a kidney stone (although I have passed them too) or passing a truck or even passing gas..

But sometime in the not too distant past, riders of the Bus Plunge passed the 100,00 mark. It slipped completely by us, but, as frequent bus riders will know, I've been busy.

PS-- While one of the contenders who want to replace Roy "Rely On Your Beliefs" Blunt may try to palm himself off as just a "hillbilly", a frequent bus rider wants to know if he wouldn't be more accurately known as "Southern Hills Billy" or "Cooper Estates Billy" or even "Greenwood Billy"? Catanese possiblly references the same question. Just cause you wear a white hat doesn't mean you are a good guy*

*Long won the day based on pure speechifying. It'll be hard for any of the candidate's to top Billy in this department. But throughout his humorous and off-the-cuff repertoire, Long has a tendency to make some statements that could come back to haunt him. He mocked the plight of the uninsured ("Get out the crying towel") and claimed that 26 million people under 35 probably don't want health insurance anyway. Claiming that President Obama's healthcare plan might have taken his mother's life back in March of 2008 is also quite a strong charge. It's all done in the loving-aw-shucks Long way, but in a competitive race where a sliver of moderate Republicans could matter, those statements may rub some the wrong way.
