I Like Your Style...

New addition for the links sidebar:

Colin McEnroe's To Wit. This guy writes for the Hartford Courant, the paper I grew up reading. He's not that old, but he's been around long enough that I remember him as the sardonic guy with the column on the "Lifestyle" section (or whatever). Anyway, he came to my attention again last year after he penned some great take-downs on Lieberman. Sometimes Nutmeg State-centric, but worth reading.

Not ready to add to the sidebar yet, but worth checking out:
Two Glasses [via Mike]
Clusterfuck Nation by Jim Kuntstler [via Two Glasses]

UPDATE:Ah, hell. Two Glasses, you're in. A Reckoning and the Bacon Blogging put you over the top.

A hearty second to the Two Glasses link. Excellent blog. And Toast is a real good guy.

Funny you linked to Clusterfuck Nation. I used to "hang out" in the free-wheeling comments section over at CFN. That's where I met a few of the guys I link to: Weaseldog's Lair & Petropest Launch Pad (Mort). But things can get flat-out wacky over at CFN at times, with conspiracy theories, doom-saying, and other apocolyptic craziness. Plus the trolls can get REAL bad there.

That said, it's often hard to find a more well-informed bunch of commenters.

And Kunstler, himself, is a great writer whose ideas about Peak Oil & Suburban sprawl are ground-breaking.

Colin McEnroe. Worth reading indeed. And The Shipping News is one of your favorite reads? Good choice. And to think Proulx's the one who wrote the story on which " Brokeback Mountain " was based. Talk about range.

Don't know if you still live in the area, but McEnroe has a radio show on WTIC (1080 AM) from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM every day. He's one of the few news radio "personalities" who doesn't make me want to rip my eardrums out in self defense.

Thanks for the linkage.

No, I'm in MI now, and I don't make it back to CT much. Thanks for the tip though.

Two Glasses, you're in.

Woo Hoo! I rule. ;-)
