About IMAO
Then conquer we must, for our cause is just, 
And this be our motto--'In God is our trust.' 
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

"Hung up, strung up, married, or drowned - it's all the same."
-Frank J. Sr. (I'm the third)

Having found a girl crazy enough to put up with me, I decided I couldn't wait any longer. Thus I proposed on Saturday evening (and she said yes!). Probably didn't notice, but I had butterflies in my stomach all last week leading up to this.

My fiancee details the proposal and my sneaky deceptions pretty well here. Pictures of the ring here.

I feel like I should thank everyone in the blogosphere who helped me along. I started this blog to get my say out there, and never really thought I'd find a wife. I guess first thanks goes to Glenn Reynolds, the Blogfather, who I first started reading and inspired me to blog. He also was a judge in the t-shirt babe competition which was nice of him since I got everybody to call him the puppy blender.

Next thanks goes to Oceanguy of Somewhere on A1A for being the first to permalink me when I was about to give up blogging.

Then I have to thank Geeks with Guns and John Hawkins of RightWingNews for sending me my first real traffic. John Hawkins later asked for permission to put up my posts in full on his site which helped promote me and also was a judge in the t-shirt babe competition.

After that, thanks goes to Emperor Misha I (who has a t-shirt coming out and was another judge for the t-shirt babe competition) and Rachel Lucas - both of whom sent me lots of traffic that led to more regular readers. Rachel Lucas helped me move to my own URL and designed my original banner (part of which is still used). Since she is so hard to e-mail and thank personally, so everyone click on her link in this post (the others are outdated) so maybe she'll notice the traffic and come here and e-mail me.

Big thanks to Doug of ThoseShirts.com for agreeing to do t-shirts with me and then encouraging my t-shirt babe competition (including adding in a prize). Thanks to all the participants in that competition including the other judges not mentioned thus far: Blackfive, Harvey, Bill Whittle, and No One of Consequence.

I guess I should thank RightWingDuck, a great blog friend, and well as Cadet Happy. Hell, Iíll thank the rest of the IMAO blog family as well, so thank you Scott and Aquaman.

Let's see... am I forgetting anyone. Well, I guess I'll thank Eugene Volokh of the Volokh Conspiracy who I consider a partial blog father as his blog was one of the few I read before blogging myself. Little Green Footballs get thanks, because I got some of my first notice in the comments section. Doubly so for Bill Quick of Daily Pundit with his open comment style.

And I especially want to thank all you readers who have kept coming back and encouraging me to write. I never would have kept writing without all your kind words.

Sorry, wasn't able to come up with an IMW today (something new please happen in the news!). I've thought I burnt myself out permanently a number of times and was always wrong, and I'll be doing this 'till I croak halfway through a post, my head collapsing on the "Publish" button, if I have any say. Anyway, I'm jovial; more funny is to come.

God bless.

UPDATE: Oh yeah, and I should thank Life, Liberty, Etc., long time advertiser who gave me the idea for getting a t-shirt babe when they first advertised.
