Happy Birthday to us

Today marks the one-year anniversary of this blog. More than 815 posts and 10,000+ comments later, we're very proud to have been the first network evening newscast to wade into the blogosphere. For those of you who joined the party late, here's a greatest hits of sorts from the last year, chosen by yours truly.

May 31, 2005: Brian's inaugural post
Aug. 29, 2005: Wet but safe inside the Superdome
Sept. 2, 2005: Massive human sadness in New Orleans
Oct. 31-Nov. 4, 2005: "After the Storm: The Long Road Back" -- Two teams blog during a week's journey through the Gulf Coast
Feb. 17, 2006: David Gregory on the vice president's hunting accident (our most commented-on post ever)
Feb. 22, 2006: Hey postman! Watch where you deliver!
May 19, 2006: What if Congress was an English-only zone?
May 22, 2006: A long day's journey into Africa

Needless to say, we couldn't have done it without an anchorman who is willing to share his unique thoughts and observations with viewers from the most far-flung locales. So thanks, Brian. And thanks to you, the readers, who truly make this a community. If you can recall a favorite post that I missed, submit a comment below and I'll try and dig up the URL.

Brian will be celebrating the occasion with a live broadcast from New Orleans tonight on the eve of hurricane season. I expect a BlackBerry-pecked dispatch either later this morning or early afternoon.
