Sunny Days in Heaven
Spiritual/Political/Philosophical Blog on the Nature of Truth and Falsehood and Heaven

Sunday, December 21, 2003  


There is a blogger called Wretchard at The Belmont Club who is simply brilliant at illustrating and analyzing the geopolitical situation of the US and the rest of the world.

The Blogosphere is throwing up (no pun intended) an incredible group of minds who have an incisiveness, concision, and insight which is simply marvelous to behold.

Frankly, I don't think modern, journalistic punditry holds a candle to what individuals are producing on their own without support of the Establishment.

Wretchard beats Den Beste (who is no slacker) by a furlong in his precision and directness. Steven is verbose. Wretchard is not.

Then there is Paul Cella at Cella's Review who has re-incarnated Chesterton in verve, incisiveness, and delight in language.

For young people, there is Robert Bauer at Hokie Pundit, who is hip and moral at the same time, with a sharp, inquisitive mind.

There is also, of course, me - but I am for a very few (if I go by my hit counter). I don't offer any specialized knowledge or prose, but opinions simply based on an intense examination of self, and life over 50 years. I have had a certain luxury of thinking, reading, and questioning free from too many compromises with Mammon. And I have suffered disease, poverty, rejection, despair, and glory for the sake of Truth.

I am sort of like a monk who has been both worldly and artistic. Alone and yet with family.
