Forty Grand

It's fitting that this blog just had its 40,000th visitor, because today the blog's membership increased 100%—from one to two. My longtime friend Mylan Engel, whom I've known for more than 20 years, joined the blog. (His first post appears immediately below this one.) Thanks for accepting my invitation, Mylan. To readers: Please don't expect Mylan (or me) to post on a regular basis. As you know, I haven't posted much in recent months. Mylan knows that he is free to post as often as he wants, but he's busy with scholarly work and other things, such as saving animals. Please check the blog from time to time to see whether anything new appears, and feel free to link to this blog on your own blog, if you have one. By the way, I enabled comments. I believe commenters have to register, and, most importantly, I believe I have to approve each comment before it appears. I will approve comments that (1) are civil and (2) advance the discussion of the moral status of nonhuman animals. If you came here to abuse Mylan or me, please leave—and don't come back.

Addendum: I'm pleased to see that typing "animal ethics" into Google brings up this blog as the first item.
