Praise of Steve Clemons

Ezra Klein says:

anyone not reading The Washington Note should really start. Probably the widest-ranging and most informative site on my daily trawl.

I like the Washington Note, but I'm afraid it is limited to contempary politics. I think the honors for widest-ranging site would have to belong here. I doubt there is another site where Tolkein,Guns, Germs and Steel,Iraq and the state of the housing market all get equal billing. You've got to like a site where Plato's Allegory of the Cave is cited as a source for present day political action.

Yeah, and it's got the best commenters, too.

sm hits it there, delong (and many other great blogs) would hardly be worth reading without their wonderful commenters.

the anne/kharris symbiosis is blogging gold

also: the washington note is way too wordy for me. his prose doesn't flow very well.

Seriously, though. Clemons says:

The very last thing we should be doing is throwing not only money but also human lives into a military complex that has not been held to account for its questionable performance.

If people start questioning the efficacy of mass-scale violence in achieving our policies, the terrorists have already won.

I agree -- The Washington Note is a very special blog that makes me think every time I read it. I love yoru blog too, but Clemons has a knack for cracking open the nut on some very hot issues. I've seen him in action, and he's a very interesting, humane, guy who is constantly on the move and kicking up dust. He can be wordy, but I like reading it all. bw
