I'm starting to be sorry I stopped subscribing to Esquire
, a magazine I'd been reading literally since I was a child of about eight. (When you grow up in a household that has notepads featuring a
Herb Gardner* cartoon of a guy sitting at a desk with a plaque reading "I am so smart I make myself sick", you do things like that when you're eight. You are also addicted to The Twilight Zone
and The Outer Limits
and you have no idea yet that what you are is a Geek, but that's besides the point.) Because we're opening today with the joyful news of Charles Pierce
's new political blog at Esquire, to which we're going to link as soon as we're done with this post...which is kind of an Around the Blogroll, a Big Blue Smurf post, and a Blogrolling in our time post.
I was going to link to this one
, but what the hell. Just go pick one. Any one.
They aer positively Driftglassian in their awesomeness.
And speaking of the Driftman
, who has a lovely new banner image over at his place, when you put Drifty and Hunter S. Thompson
together, you get some damn fine readin'.Blue Girl

for the correction. It's always fun when others are familiar with my obscure childhood pop culture references. The image I was talking about is available on eBay in coaster form, here
