Congratulations to all my friends, colleagues and nemeses at The American Thinker which turns 6 years old today.
I have been associated with AT for almost 5 years, having written my first piece for them back in February of 2005 I consider it one of the finest conservative sites on the web, with many first class writers contributing over the years. Many of those writers, like myself, have been nurtured and encouraged by a remarkable man.
Editor in Chief Tom Lifson was the first person to really recognize that I might be able to write a little, and with patience and good humor, guided my development over the years. A self described “recovering academic,” Tom is a classic Renaissance man whose intellect is deep and broad, encompassing a wide range of topics and issues. He has turned American Thinker into one of the most impactful sites on the web, as articles and blog posts have been quoted by every major publication here and many abroad, as well as seeing AT constantly mentioned on radio and TV shows from Rush Limbaugh to Glenn Beck.
