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.
