1000 Posts

I just sat down to write a quick blurb about tonight's Reasonable Doubt and I saw on my blogger home page that I had reached my 1,000th post on this blog.

I wish I could say that it seems just like yesterday when I wrote my first post, but quite frankly it seems like another lifetime ago when this blog started.

From the first post to this current one, I never would have imagined how much I have enjoyed writing and talking about what we all do every day.  Some posts have been interesting and well-written, I hope.  The majority have probably fallen way short of that description.  The comments have always been, in my opinion, the most entertaining aspect of it.

Thanks to everybody who has participated in reading and commenting on the blog.  Obviously, without you guys, I probably wouldn't have written for more than a week.  Thanks for the insights and the corrections and the laughs.

Most importantly thanks for helping me illustrate the jobs that we all do at the Harris County Criminal Justice Center.  No matter what role you have in the System, I can't think of a more fascinating profession than the one we have.

Thank you for allowing those of us that don't work in your world the insight this blog provides. Many of us would have never known what was going on with old Pat without this blog. You helped to make a change for the better for all of the folks that worked there. Keep up the good work.

Can't wait to see what the next 1,000 will do for us. The first ones we laughed, cried, and laughed so hard we cried.

What ever happened to Joe the Investigator?

A few days ago, I went up to the 6th floor and waited around to take care of some business. As I stood and watched folks doing their jobs, there was a palpable calm in the surroundings. I heard someone talking about "Mike" doing this or needing to look at this and I was reminded how self-righteous and snooty Lykos had been insisting on being called Judge. She truly believes herself to be better than everyone. She never grasp what Mike already has- respect by being a leader and not a tyrant. The same palpable calm was also present through the other office floors. It was like foreign invaders intent on pillaging everything good had finally been cast out of the place

We owe a lot to this blog for making that happen. Thanks Murray!
