HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY BONGOLESIA BLOG!!!!

Wow...
Another year has come and gone and the old Bongo Blog keeps on trucking...
Once again I am amazed and so grateful for all of the support that everyone has given in maintaining the interest to it. 
I would especially like to think Rebel Minis for their dedication to the "Bongolesia" setting for their "Modern Havok" rules. A big thumbs up and here's hoping for more shenanigans as many of his figures grace my tables...
Some of you have asked me "How do I do it?"  and the answer is..."I really couldn't do it without you." 
And I am being honest. 
Over the last six years, I've received praise and flak because of this site. I've grown a thick skin, because of some of the mis-aligned arrows that has been sent my way because of it. I've been accused of being a racist, bigot, prejudiced, and "just mean spirited".
But those that know me also know that I am none of those. 
One only has to look at the dark history of many countries in Africa, (even today) and realize that "If Bongolesia was truly like any of those places, it wouldn't have lasted six months on the net, let alone six years"...
Mel Brooks once said "I beat Hitler if I can make him a laughingstock."  I try to do the same thing using Idi Amin as "P'hat Daddee B'wonah". Sure his excellency is a scheming scoundrel and has a dark side. But if I can make him a bit of a buffoon, with constant schemes of richness, and power, destined to fail, then perhaps then in a way we have beat that man. And it is with your help that we win...every time...
And for that...I am grateful.
Thank you everyone for another year at the helm of foolishness and fun....

Sincerely;

Michael T. Murphy
