Back in November of 1998, I posted the first Bolingbrook Babbler article on my home page. I didn’t expect to still be writing it 21 years later, and I absolutely didn’t expect the tabloid mentality I was satirizing to become so widespread on the Internet and in the mainstream media.
To all the people who enjoy the Babbler, I say thank you for reading. To everyone who has helped me along the way, thank you too. Especially my wife, who became my copy editor and the person who says, “do you really want to say that?”
It has been quite a journey writing the Babbler, and I’m happy to say that it is far from over.
