Tales of the Bean Counter - 10,000 hits

For about 13 years I have benn coping with a bean counter.  I define bean counting as compiling worthless statistics.  In a business situation statistics are often needed to justify a decision, but I have had to exist with people who take much time and effort to impose upon other people to compile statistics that are meaningless.

This journal which commenced on October 15, 2005 is about to reach the 10,000 hit mark.  This number is compiled by AOL.  But does this number have any significance?  For example, if I access my own journal to compose or edit an entry there is a hit counted.  Thus, the real number of hits is less than 10,000.  I am really concerned about the quality and significance of each visitor.

Did my journal encourage someone to write his own journal?  I know of one case.

Did anybody develop an interest in Bob Dylan, the Mets, Saturday Night Oldies or WCBS-FM because of my journal?

Did anyone from my past read this journal and contact me?  I am aware of one person.

So I would like to thank everyone who stopped by here to read journal be it just once or many times.
