I get a number of rewards from and it’s hard to enumerate them all or say which is at the top of the list but things like this have rank right up there:

Someone at the New York State Assembly in Albany did a Google search for “richard aborn five point plan” and found my post explaining why Richard Aborn, candidate for District Attorney in Manhattan, is a bigot.
What were the odds of me getting that viewpoint to that person or persons in a position of power and hundreds (or more–I get about visits from about 45K unique IPs per month) of others with so little effort prior to the Internet and the existence of blogs?
