Neilalien Marks Ten Years -- Thanks to Tom Spurgeon for reminding us that today is the tenth anniversary of Neilalien's original foray into comics blogging.
In addition to being one of the sharpest observers of the comics industry, the multiverse's biggest Doctor Strange booster, and the Comics Blogosphere's progenitor, I have to note that Neil has been an amazing friend to both Comic Book Galaxy and myself. I have counted on his wisdom and knowledge more times than either of us likely cares to remember, and no one has been a better force for keeping this site running, with his great advice and encouragement.
Happy Anniversary, Neil, here's to ten or twenty more great years!

American Terrorists are Still Terrorists -- Go read this great piece at Salon about the media's loathsome reluctance to call people like Joseph Stack, Scott Roeder and Timothy McVeigh what they are: Terrorists.

The Monday Briefing -- Haven't done one of these in a long, long time...
* I want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped out in my Emergency Dental Book Sale to raise funds for my daughter's wisdom teeth extraction. It was done late last week, and she's recovering, slowly, but she is recovering, and I'm relieved it's behind us and grateful for the support of so many readers. Thank you.
* On a related note, all books have been sent out as of today, so if you ordered, you should have your stuff soon.
* Now, the next ordeal! You may or may not be aware that Blogger (owned by Google) has decided to end its support of FTP functionality in the next few weeks. Sadly, Blogger's platform is what Comic Book Galaxy was built on a decade ago, and continues to be the foundation of the site's blogs and some of its satellites.
If anyone out there with some tech/web savvy and understanding of what is going on with Blogger is willing to help us navigate (or at least understand) these changes, I hope you'll email me and hopefully lend us some insight. At the moment I have no idea what these changes mean for our site(s), but it doesn't sound promising. I hope you'll get in touch if you have any wisdom to share.
