It was early 2005. The Iraq War was approaching its worst stage. I was spending more time on-line, reading the news articles one couldn’t (and still cannot) find in the traditional media. Political blogs were blossoming up like mushrooms after a warm Autumn rain.
One day, reading an article at Majikthise, one of the few blogs where I would occasionally comment, I followed a link to a blog with a strange name – firedoglake. The next day, some other blog linked to an article here. I bookmarked the site and started reading it regularly.
Soon, I decided to comment here. It was risky, as I didn’t feel as knowledgeable on the issue at hand – I can’t remember what it was – but felt I might add a little. Within a few minutes, my comment was greeted by Jane Hamsher, who welcomed me, Edward Teller.
