Roll Them Blogs!
This last is the highest and hardest standard for most blogs to meet. A number of very good blogs have dropped off my roll when the quality of their content went south. One was particularly saddening to drop--a quite well-known conservative blogger, who wrote like an angel, but abandoned significant public content after the election.
Her private content comes from a world I do not share, and am indifferent to, a common ground only of Generation X, in the particularly arid and tasteless cultural atmosphere of the Reagan Administration. No I will not name her, for she is still far too good a writer to do so in any tone of censure.
In the dance of things, my left wing blogroll has gotten a little overfull in comparison to the rest, particularly with the addition of James Woolcott. I have been searching the conservative blogosphere for balance. Recently, the Easton Jordan affair degraded conservative content disastrously into a mutual self-congratulation linkathon. So its been hard to discern just who over there might still meet my standards.
But I have been keeping an eye on several bloggers, reading them with pleasure, and will now post them to the roll: The Glittering Eye, Captain's Quarters, and Sebastian Holsclaw. Check them out for yourself. And welcome to them for passing the Joe Claus test.
