Happy birthday Horses for Sources

May 22, 2008 | Phil Fersht

Horses1 124 posts, 548 comments and ONE YEAR later, this blog continues to (somehow) prolong the dialog on the "O" topic.  I have learned so much from some of the excellent views, opinions and insights from so many of you - I hope some of you have too.

Here are some of my favorite highlights:
