"I wouldn't belong to any club that would have me for a member."
Once, when I had just taken the helm of my own daily newspaper in a small Wyoming town, a rather worried rancher came to see me, to sort out my politics in his cowboy way. "How do you generally come down on Republicans or Democrats?" he asked.
"Amused," I said.
I've been deleted from the Texas Connection Blogroll because my politics weren't conservative nor rabid enough. I was defrocked because I didn't say bad things about a liberal blogger to whom I link, nor would I remove his link. There's simply too much sturm und drang in the blogosphere as it is. In that way, moderate views are apparently a threat to the stability of the universe. So, it turns out, The Right is as quick as the Left to muzzle anybody with whom it doesn't agree.
So any of you Texas Connection blog-rollers who liked to stop by for a cuppa joe and some militant moderate views to keep you regular, please link me. I promise more of the same provocative views from the Majority Middle.
