The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The conscience of blogdom

You know these folks. There's Steven, the analyst; Charles, the front-line reporter; Jane, the chief financial officer; Glenn, the head of distribution; Laurence, who is, well, Laurence. And there are plenty of others who've earned their place on the first team.

And then there's Susanna Cornett, who over the past year has become the unofficial conscience of the Blogosphere, the still, small voice who pipes up to remind us that some things are more than simply inexpedient: they are wrong, and there's a reason why.

Today we celebrate one year of Susanna's cut on the bias. And if you're wondering just what kind of person she is, well, as that Lee Ann Womack record says, "Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance/And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance/I hope you dance."

Susanna dances. She always has. And she always will.

I've had my disagreements with Susanna, but I always go back. That is a good thing!

Can I have the post of "Court Jester" or "Fool" on the First Team...?

And of course...you, Charles, shall be the Official Writer (can't think of a better way to say it). Your style of writing never fails to entertain, beguile, or otherwise intrigue.

What the hell am I? Chopped liver?

Page, honey, you're spoken for; there is less potential gain in sucking up to you.

Even though you are the Perfect Girlfriend.
