I STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO TO GET INTO JOSH MARSHALL’S league, but I just received my monthly web visits statistics for October, which are 250,683. Josh and Wonkette get more than this many visits by breakfast, but for a new site, I’m pleased. September visits were 140,386.
Other good news is that after nearly six years in my role as Executive Director of the New America Foundation, I am becoming as of today a Senior Fellow in order to develop more of my own thinking and writing in the realms of foreign policy and international economic policy questions. I loved my previous role, but as the organization has grown, I had less and less time to write and develop important policy inititiaves.
So, despite whatever happens tomorrow, today is my Freedom Day.
