The River

Blogging will save the world

Is it me, or has The River turned rather dark lately?

Can’t be helped, I guess. Damn these vicissitudes.

But ya know night before last I met a blogger, Rick Pietz of Radically Inept, and bad-a-bing, synchronicity. “Yeah, fuck the fuckin Romans, knamsayin?” and such like banter. Politics, history, philosophy. Really, it can’t be beat. Another iconoclast, well met.

And what’s truly odd, besides the two bloggers in question, is that we both posted pieces dealing with the Atlanta Braves and the business of baseball on Tuesday, and neither had read the other one.

Rick is one of the many new bloggers I’ve been meaning to add to my blogroll. Many are new to blogging and some are old pros I’ve read but never got around to adding.

Here’s a partial list:

Radically Inept: Fellow Atlantan. Had a beer at Manuels. Politically progressive and passionate.

Scratchings: Modest name, brilliant blogger.

The Hand That Holds The Light: Slightly Stunned Pigeon writing at a new site.

Guerrilla News Network Not to be confused with CNN.

The Blogging of the President: 2004: Bop on over for intelligent political conversation.

Orcinus: Neiwert. Nuff said.

the rude pundit: High-quality, hilarious political/satirical must-read.

Only Connect: With good writing.

bsmoffatt: Best BS in the blogosphere.

Hard 7: Political Commentary: Old friend and journalism pro from Missoula days. (Hey Frank, when are we going to have a beer?)
