...to Atrios. If you don't know Eschaton, you should: simels and I met there, among other things. Atrios' main concerns are the intersections and effects of media on politics and vice versa, and when we live in an age where the VP knows which Sunday shows to use to launch propaganda, those are pretty important points to explore. But he's also funny, snarky, sharp, a genuinely nice guy, and he's created a warm, wacky, foulmouthed and quite genuine community of commenters. Thanks, Atrios, for letting us turn your blog into an MTV-style party house.
