OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

Bart Hinkle, Blogger

In response to a post below on the relationship between the press and bloggers, the TD's Bart Hinkle introduces us to his own blog, Barticles. What will he offer readers?

Addenda, parentheticals, and digressions related to my columns in the Times-Dispatch; links to supporting material, sources, and resources for further research; responses; ripostes; rebuttals; counterchecks quarrelsome; and the rare intemperate outburst, hurled with great force and intended to sting.

You also will find frequent links to interesting news items, comments, tidbits, and whatnots. We’re big on whatnots around here.

It look like a fun and interesting read, two things which have been in rather short supply in the Virginia blog world of late.

And, no doubt, it will provide even more grist for Conaway's mill.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
