I first remember James Lilkes’ daughter Gnat as a toddler around about 9/11, in the Daily Bleat. Near-daily updates about Gnat were a part of the early years of this blog, reading the Bleat every morning on my way about the rest of my life.
Gnat has just graduated from high school. It should go without saying that it snuck up on me.
Congratulations, Gnat! And the whole Lileks family, while we’re at it.
Didn’t say it would be a good joke. But then, either are Buzzfeed’s “journalistic ethics”.
