Sometime in the wee hours of Tuesday, July 24, 2007, a bold new chapter dawned in the history of our Treasured Island. Yes, the Alameda Daily Noose and I welcomed our 4,000th visitor* into our electronic living room, where we sat down on the electronic couch, cracked open a couple of electronic beers, and complained vigorously—and electronically—about the state of affairs in this town. We can now say with great pride that over 5% of every man, woman, and child in Alameda has darkened our digital doorstep! That means Our Fair City is more than 5% better informed and more than 5% more right thinking than ever before. Thank you once again for choosing the best soon-to-be-award-winning daily noosepaper in Alameda!
