I wasn't paying attention when it happened, but yesterday this blog had its 50,000th visitor -- a milestone by any standard. (Still, I would have preferred it had come sooner.) This notable visitor found me because he (or she) was curious about the circumstances of the assassination attempt on the late Pope John Paul II.

It was no coincidence that yesterday, April 2, was the first anniversary of Pope John Paul's death and will, barring unforeseen circumstances, likely become the day in which St. John Paul the Great will be commemorated in the Roman church calendar.

Here's how visitor #50,000 looked on Site Meter:

So, if you live in Paradise Valley, Arizona, and you visited this blog on Sunday, I would like to hear from you. It would be nice to know who Number 50,000 is.
