  • 33% (21 votes): They’ve just begun to fight.

Total: 62 votes

Exhibit A

Quick note: this blog will now be a mirror for my diary at Daily Kos. While I am grateful to my readership sticking with my sporadic posting, you’re a pretty small group, and the goal of the Justice Log is to make a difference. On to the post…

A few notes

If you hadn’t already noticed, this blog [i.e. “Reality Check,” not “Relics”] is pretty much dead :-).

My new blog is on LiveJournal — Morgan’s Musings. It’s not as political as this one, though I’m not avoiding politics, either.

Since SquawkBox looks like it’s discontinuing it’s free service soon, I’ve copied the two whole comments people have made via it and turned them into hard-coded links from the relevant posts. If you have any further comments on any of my entries, please feel free to email me (see the link under the wolf pic).
