The DeBord Report has hit a milestone: 1,000 posts.
We started this blog at KPCC.org on August 16 of last year with a post about Warren Buffett and his view that the rich should pay more in taxes, an argument that ultimately became a central factor in the Presidential election.

In between, I've covered a lot of ground - from the Solyndra bankruptcy to Bitcoin debates to the bad business of porn. From the jobs crisis to the housing crisis to the venture capital crisis and CalPERS. From why Hollywood and Silicon Valley can't get along to all things Apple and how Los Angeles is become a U.S. center of microlending. I spoke with economists. Lots and lots of economists.

But I also kept watch on whole California cities going out of business, a baseball team being sold for billions, Facebook's failures, foreclosures galore, and the ascent of the Los Angeles libertarian. SpaceX sent rockets into orbit, JPL sent a nuclear-powered robot tank to Mars, and Disney bought "Star Wars." Occupy L.A. ... occupied L.A.!
