My little "AP neswire" line was a parody, a joke. It was all meant in good taste.
I write for some local papers and kind of "went with it" here on hearing the news of the forum's 100,000th. I just fell into my writing persona and acted like your 100,000th viewing was a front-page thing.
It was just meant for our core of regulars to get a kick out of, etc. I didn't post it anywhere else. (I probably should have said it was a joke... gottcha!)
Anyway, here's to the 200,000th!!
(I still think you've earned that hand hewn plaque, however!!)
