From Curmudgeon at Political Clown Parade, who is an outstanding blogger and Photoshop expert extraordinaire:
[...]These bloggers are but a few of the brave and resolute men and women who hold down jobs and raise their families while standing guard over liberty. They don’t have big advertising on their sites nor do they have a bevy of contributing writers. They pore over information and bring their opinions to their readers in order to inform and warn.
They have the keen zest of the citizen whose patriotism is of the lusty type that causes them to take an active part in politics. They add humor and common sense. They deserve to be recognized.
To receive this at a time when my spirits are low is a gift of magnificent proportions...
Thank you, Curmudgeon!
If you are not acquainted with these fine people, now would be a good day to visit. I count them all as friends.
