David Swindle’s appreciation of a blogging pioneer:
I take very seriously Ed’s commentaries and recommendations on culture, media, and their influence on politics.
There are very few other writers with a comparable breadth of both off-beat pop culture oddities and the ins-and-outs of the ideological wars of today’s political world.
One who comes to mind is another writer who I’ll feature down the line in this series and who I know Ed appreciates too: Kathy Shaidle.
They each come at the political-cultural nexus through similar Gen-Xer 70s centric modes, though with very different rhetorical weapons.
(Kathy a Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! style kick, while Ed sneaks up with a Vulcan nerve pinch.)
