This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

If there is anybody out there reading who finds it outrageous that I get my news from Instapundit and Best of the Web with no balance, I just wish to say, I read left-wing websites (besides Balkin -- it'd be hard to get too much news from him, he might post even more sporadically than me!). Really. It's just that generally I have no wish to pass along what they say. I'd like to say that they're more profane than the right-wing sites, but sadly, I'm not sure that's the case anymore; certainly Talking Points isn't nearly as bad as Tim Blair. If you want this site to be balanced, well, tough. You don't have to read it, now do you? I have no doubt that I'm at least as balanced as Marshall or Balkin are.

Speaking of Blair, I saw linked from his site the story of Jake Ryan, a guy who was at the Bali club during the bombing last year. Very compelling reading.

Boy, talk about a generic blog. What can I say, I'm not a design guy. My brother says he'll design a template for me if I want...

These are the sites that I read the most:

instapundit (like many, many other people)
Google News
OK, OK, so I'm biased. Big deal.

Arts & Letters Daily

The best dang writing on the web, period. (At least it was, when I set up this blog 4 years ago.)
Lileks (especially the Bleat)
Eject! Eject! Eject!

Dave Barry
Tim Blair

How Appealing
Balkin (when I want to get mad)
