Happy Thanksgiving from My Back Pages: Question the Answers!

Yes, I do understand that this blog, being a one-man project, does not have a huge staff contributing content to it. Still, there is a multitude of people that I would like to acknowledge who have worked behind-the-scenes for the improvement of this site. This site has been around for nearly a year and a half and has witnessed tremendous growth in popularity and content quality. I would like to give thanks to the following people for helping me with this blog, I could not have possibly done it without you.

Diego Otero-Caldwell, Alex Hillan and Michael Kreher for contributing reblog content and quotes. Expect to see these people later in the blogosphere.

Joshua Wretzel, Lisa Turner and Scott Roos for making me think in logical and different ways. Without you, My Back Pages: Question the Answers could have become just another generic personal journal
