I hope you will allow me a quick indulgence, because today is an important day, and we need to figure out where to go from here.
I'd never been much of a blogger, but I finally decided to take the plunge and start Let There Be Light(house) last year.
In fact, one year ago today.
That's right, Let There Be Light(house) is 1 year old today. I had no idea what to expect when I started this blog....I didn't know if people would read it, I didn't know if it would perform the service I wanted, I didn't know if I'd be able to stick with it, and I especially didn't know how long this would take.
Like all of you, I hoped for final closure on the Lighthouse issue by now, but political gamesmanship on both sides has prevented that from happening. Groundbreaking in 2009 is a distant fantasy, and a 2010 groundbreaking is, given the timelines, a remote possibility (even though Stan Fischler - with the impeccable source of "a Coliseum employee" - reported otherwise on TV a few days ago. It's very possible that they aren't scheduling any events for the summer HOPING for a ground-breaking, but that does not mean anything has been authorized). Therefore, this blog will continue going for the foreseeable future.
My goal has always been to stop this blog as soon as we reached final closure on the Lighthouse Project, either way. As we move into the second year of this blog, I really need to hear from you, in the comments space:
Where would you like this blog to go? Should I solicit guest posts? Should I bring on more writers to keep posting fresh? Should I be doing something I haven't even thought of?
As always, thank you for your kind support - it has been an honor.
Expect a "Best of" post tomorrow, as well as a Year in Pictures. As always, I'll be on any breaking news.
