I rarely do this but Digby is usually the most insightful writer in the blogosphere. He is having an annual fund raiser. Go to Digby, pull out your credit card or get on paypal, and give him some money. Ten bucks is all I could afford, but if you can only handle $5, do that. If you can do more, do it.
The writing he does takes TIME. I've tried and I don't have the skills or patience to do what he does. Get on line, get to his blog, look at the left hand side, and kick in some.
Then bookmark him and read his stuff if you haven't already. This is more important than NPR!
