Hello all researchers and commentors!

Well, the day is finally upon us.  I know there have been questions
that asked for your favorite answers, your favorite customers and your
areas of expertise.  So I won't ask that again.  But there is one
question I have, a little birdy once told me but I forgot:

Why is the sky blue?

It seems the little "birdie" who told you may have learned it here
first - and I mean that literally. "Why is the sky blue?" was the
first question posted here on April 9, 2002. I'd answer it for you but
someone had obviously beaten me to it so I cannot, in good form, take
your fee.

Yes, it was the first question and I am symbolically offering it as
the last question.  If you don't want to answer that exact question
then you may substitute "GA community" for the word sky.

I am honored if you feel compelled to present your last $2 to me as a
parting favor. As for your question, let me quote Thoreau:

"I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances
confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the
life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in
common hours."

Like the sky, perhaps were are not really as blue as we seem. It only
appears that way to the naked eye.

If we're on the same page I will gladly post and claim.

Please, go ahead and answer the question however you wish.  It's been
a joy to read your many answers over the years.  I'd be honored if you
answered my last question.

Dearest Bowler:

The honor is all mine, I assure you. You have been a fastastic
customer and a generous rater. Likewise I shall miss you all and
sincerely wish you the very best the world has to offer.

secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is
no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and

Hi Rob

The sky was, indeed, blue when the question was first asked but, for
some reason, it's now gone very black.

Oh yes ... my street lighting is not working!
