The Radikal Hits 80,000
I still remember the article in the Independent Florida Alligator... the one that included all the short-lived SG blogs of the day, but somehow managed to exclude TR -- conspiracy? concerted effort? Who knows.
There have been threats of lawsuits from AMC, fallout from various Alligator editors, TR covered the Grapski/Machen, Grapski/Alachua, & Grapski/Jones feuds, the blog was all over the Andrew Meyer Taser Issue with a YouTube.com video that went Top 20 worldwide and currently has been viewed nearly 140,000x. TheRadikal.com has covered Islamophobia @ UF, four consecutive years of UF Student Government, Zionism, extensively covered Michael Vick case (launching www.SickMikeVick.com); the blog features 20 full-length interviews, hundreds of archived posts, and boasts readers from various states of the Union and nations of the world.
TheRadikal.com will be around ten years from now, uniting free-thinkers, GoD Damn Independents, the mIsUnderstood, the NonConformists, Commies, Anarchists, weirdos, druggies, revolutionaries, "creeps," and all the corporate, A&F, GAP-sporting country club aspiring big business, cigar-smoking elitists that want to keep tabs on those they most...those they can't buy, those they can't conquer, those who will never bow down and take their shit.
Here's to 80,000...see you at a 100 :)
