Around the blogroll and elsewhere: Special Steve Gilliard Memorial Edition
Posted by Jill | 9:47 AM
Sara at Orcinus has another moving tribute to Steve Gilliard. And Jon Swift compiles all of them.

The more recent posts at the News Blog's dedicated domain can only be found through Google, but the archive blog is still up. So if you want to know why Steve Gilliard was so important to bloggers, here's why:

Back in January of this year, Steve nails the problem with Hillary.

Steve on the history of Colonialism.

Steve on being a Fighting Liberal. Barack Obama, take note.

Steve on how Iraq could devolve into civil war.

Steve on how to keep your family from killing each other during the holidays.

Steve at Netslaves in 2003 on surviving in New York's Silicon Alley.

Steve at Daily Kos in 2003 on how the right abuses history.

Steve speaks for Mets fans everywhere in 2005 about Kris Benson's wife.

Steve on why blogs work.

Just one of Steve's terrific pieces in which he showed why he should have been Salon's advice columnist instead of Cary Tennis.

Steve exhorting a dispirited blogosphere to continue fighting after the 2004 election.

And there's so much more -- far more than I can ever link to here. So before it's taken down, go over to the News Blog archives and find out why this is such a sad weekend.
