The 101st Fighting Keyboardists

I see that a bunch of people are now following Alex Jones' lead and assuming that our membership in the 101st Fighting Keyboardists blog group means that we're CentCom. And we would have gotten away with it if we hadn't pasted that logo in our sidebar. DOH!

Actually the story behind that is pretty simple. James and I started this blog on May 1, 2006. Right about the same time, Captain's Quarters, a major conservative blog, started an alliance of bloggers who were in support of the war in Iraq. So I signed us up. The result that we got linked at hundreds of blogs by the term "Screw Loose Change", which effectively was a massive Google Bomb which vaulted us up to the first page of the Google rankings for the term "Loose Change".

I have no connection with military whatsoever, other than the one that all American citizens should have: An appreciation for the work they do to make us safe.
