Making The Almanac

Steve hasn’t mentioned it yet himself, but his “Monster” post from yesterday was picked up by the reigning guru of American politics, Michael Barone. Barone mentioned the post on Fox News last night, and writes about it today on his own blog.

It’s an interesting world these days. Five years ago, a Barone never would have read anything by a Colorado Springs investor and racouteur, and the Washington Post or BBC never would have dreamed of quoting an obscure engineer and occasional sports writer from suburban Atlanta. Interesting world, and in a real and better way, a much larger one.

As for myself, while Steve gloats and prepares to buy the Boeing, I’ll just sit around in reflected glory–and only moderately insane jealousy…

UPDATE: Correction time, I misread an email about Barone, thinking it said that’d he’d appeared on Fox News Tuesday and referenced Steve’s post. I was apparently incorrect, and the fault in this case is entirely mine. All apologies. I stand by my reporting of the post on Barone’s blog, since, er, that part wasn’t wrong.

    Just remember, Will….

    You can say “I remember Stephen when he drank Mad Dog and ate at Mickey D’s!”.

    But, hey, if he can get six figures for the website, he may need it, if the Mrs. produces a girl-child.

    Has to keep her in the “style to which she has become accostomed to”.

    Will,

    I sent Mr. Barone a very nice thank you email yesterday. I’ve been reading him since high school, so I just can’t bring myself to call him just Barone or Michael or -gasp- Mike.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a test flight at the Boeing dealer.

    Nice article Stephen, I can see why the MSM wouldn’t touch it. “Make say only bad things about the Bushies, and how good we are.”

    As for the Boeing jet, the F-15 is a nice two seater. Of course it’s not kid friendly, but perfect for a night on the town.

    Is it possible that winning is no longer an event, such as a surrender, unconditional or otherwise, but a process — and that is why it is so difficult to define?

    Uh huh. Yep.

    Winning is no longer an event. Neither is orgasm. But surrender is an event. And so is orgasm, by the way. A process is an event in progress, pointing to an event sure to come.
