Sunday will be the 3,000th consecutive day Bob Vander Plaats has been running for governor. To illustrate the amount of time he’s been running, I’ve listed some landmarks for reference…
Bill Clinton was our President
Britney Spears was touring to promote her debut album
911 was just a number you dialed when in an emergency
Barack Obama was just a State Senator from Illinois
The Yankees just won their 3rd straight World Series in the Subway Series
Tom Latham represented part of Western Iowa
Saddam Hussein was alive – so were his kids
"Scary Movie" was too stupid for anyone to believe there might be sequels
Kurt Warner ruled the world (he's on his 2nd comeback now!)
Lance Armstrong just won a SECOND Tour de France
Elian Gonzales went back to Cuba
Doug Gross wasn’t thought of as a moderate
Marcus Fizer went 4th in the NBA draft - Go ISU!!!
Napster, Baby. Napster

Have you seen that new show, "Survivor"?
Eastern Iowa Congressional seats were held by Republicans
What the hell is a DVD player? No thanks - it'll never last
Dennis Miller is joining "Monday Night Football" - That will be awesome!!!
Whassup?!?!?!?! (in classic Budweiser voice of course)
That is about all I could think of. If you have some more to add, feel free to list them in the comments.
Oh and Bob, may the next 3,000 be as good as the last!
