The Northern Alliance

I'm honored and somewhat stunned to note that Captain's Quarters has been added to Hugh Hewitt's Northern Alliance blogroll in his latest reorganization. As you probably know, I am a long-time fan of Hugh's columns and his radio show, especially when I get caught in scenic drives on the way home from work, like I did last night.

I don't listen to a lot of talk radio because I find that a great deal of it is shrill and annoying, and even when people don't make a habit of screaming into a microphone, they still tend to get childish and demeaning. Hugh keeps his focus on facts, which is no surprise if you read him in the Weekly Standard, and at the same time makes his show very entertaining. Hugh has a great sense of humor, which is more than people can say about so-called comedians on the left these days (for instance, Janeane Garofalo).

If you want an example of how well Hugh manages his show and keeps it focused on facts, you have no better opportunity than tonight when he replays his Gaffney-Norquist debate. If you don't have the show in your area, listen through the Internet via his web site.

I've been so busy in the last month, and until today I hadn't been at my desk since last Tuesday. (I did sneak in that one post from the kids system at home yesterday.) I already had links stacked up [Read More]

Nice coup. A feather in your cap, indeed.

I wouldn't mind getting on that blogroll, but I'm not sure I'd like to jump through those hoops. :)

Congrats!

I've got to agree with Jon, however. A man has to have some pride!

Seriously-
You earned that spot with your writings. Nice job!

Way to go Ed! Your post last night was great and covered the exchange well. It is very difficult to ignore well founded charges and as I wrote last night, Gaffney did his homeowrk on this. This morning I feel even stronger about that.

Good coverage by you and your blog is outstanding. I look forward to hearing you tonight.

And we bid you fair welcome, sir! You make an excellent addition to the Alliance. Now the big question is, are you part of COTS or not?
