To the joy of many and the dismay of some, Talk of the Sound keeps on keeping on as we roll into our 8th year of publication.
To celebrate, we have put out the virtual tin cup for folks who would like to drop a few coins in and help me scrape together some cash to feed my children (or at least buy me a nice cigar!).
You can find the paypal button in the upper right corner of the page.
The actual anniversary is September 1, 2008. Back then the hope among many in City Hall was that we would just go away. When we did not many folks tried to ignore us. When that did not work they began attacking us (and me), the site, and worse. Despite death threats, violence, bogus criminal complaints, unfounded civil lawsuits and more, we just keep on going. We have beat back every attempt to shut down this site and will continue to do so. We our accountable to our readers and no one else.
At this point, I think it is safe to say that most people in New Rochelle have accepted that Talk of the Sound is just a fact of life, that when we run a story about the latest scandal or outrage, readers know it’s true despite whatever whining or denials might be made by the guilty parties.
To all those loyal readers over the years, thank you for support. For those who are new, feel free to dig into some of the older articles and enjoy.
