Publisher of the Bolingbrook Babbler
When the Bolingbrook Babbler was founded in 1965, my great-grandfather made a promise. He said that as long as there was a Bolingbrook, there would be a Bolingbrook Babbler.
Normally at this time of year, we would re-print articles as a way to celebrate the birthday of our website, which is now 18 years old. This year I want to do something different.
First, I want to thank our readers. Your support over the years has been vital to keeping the Babbler going, and to help us stand up to the powerful people who don’t want their secrets exposed. Secrets like Bolingbrook’s Clow UFO Base, and Mayor Roger Claar’s “campaign stops” across the solar system. Thanks to you, they can’t stop the Babbler from publishing. Thank you for supporting us.
Second, I want to talk about the future. We don’t know exactly what the future will bring, but our psychics say that there are dark days ahead for the country and Bolingbrook. Some worry that the press will be intimidated by President Donald Trump. You might wonder if we will tone down our coverage now that Roger is friends with Trump. The answer is no. We’ve covered Roger for over 30 years, and there’s no need to stop now. You need to know the truth, and be mislead by Internet memes. We are not a post-truth publication. Reality matters, even if the skeptics can’t believe it.
So we’ll writing the real stories about Bolingbrook, the most important village in the Milky Way. I will echo my great-grandfather’s words. As long as there is a Bolingbrook, there will be a Bolingbrook Babbler.
