Happy Birthday, Lucianne Goldberg

Today is the birthday of a very special person. Lucianne Goldberg, publisher of the highly esteemed discussion forum Lucianne.com, celebrates another milestone in a life full of amazing stories.

Lucianne was the person who coaxed me out of hiding, into writing for and speaking to the public under my own name, rather than just as a commenter via a screen name. Everything that has followed, including American Thinker, derives from her encouragement. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel toward her.

I cannot speak on behalf of the entire conservative movement, but I regard Lucianne as the den mother of the American right.

Happy birthday, Lucianne!
