Steve Gilliard, RIP
I don't post about politics as much as I used to, for a couple of reasons. First off, I no longer feel like my viewpoint is being ignored. Hell, if polls are to be believed, most of my opinions are shared by the vast majority of people in the country right now. Secondly, there are many people writing about politics doing a much better job of it than I, or at least expressing the opinions I have better than I think I could. One of those people was Steve Gilliard, operator of the News Blog, the only blog where I ever contributed money. Well, after a longish illness, he passed away on Saturday. His was a wonderful voice, and I am among the many who will miss it.
