In noting the countries above, I can see countries like Kuwait and Qatar, and assume there’s a good possibility that at least a few of those PWBTS.com visitors are from the US military. According to AddFreeStats, I already know there have been 2,190 separate visits from US military hostnames. For those of you in the US military, wherever you’re serving, thanks for taking time to read PWBTS.com. I hope we’ve given you some enjoyment in the middle of your difficult task, especially during this holiday season now ending.
In other milestones, AS I SEE IT also begins its sixteenth with this column. Additionally, PWBTS.com, its flagship site has now reached over 42 million page views during its 15 year history.

In 2010, AS I SEE IT and PWBTS have discussed various issues concerning independent wrestling, as well as puroresu, lucha, and WWE, including such subjects as:
The Linda McMahon United Senate campaign and its consequent effect on WWE programming,
Reminders of tragic anniversaries, such as the anniversaries of the death of Eddie Guerrero and Christopher “Chris Cash” Bauman, Owen Hart and Brian Hildebrand…and the anniversary of the passing of former WWF referee Joey Marella…

In 2011, as every year, here’s hoping that AS I SEE IT gives you a lot more chances to make you think… that it can comment and report on many more moments of enjoyment… less moments that I feel moved to criticize… and FAR less where I have to report on or think about someone in wrestling that we’ve lost…and that it serves as the viewpoint for one longtime fan to share his opinions with all of you.
Until next time…
