Page hits on the blog slipped past 700,000 just before noon today, Central Time.
Other than the odd post on ancient animation, the Bathtub is plateaued at just over 2,000 viewers per day. All of them are advance-degreed, well-balanced, erudite individuals, I gather. At least, most are too polite to post just for the sake of responding. Some of the best and most interesting stuff comes from readers who comment.
If hits were dollars, we could buy about 42 seconds of the war in Iraq, I estimate.
