Armadillo Slow here just found The Group News Blog, where former commenters at and contributors to the late, great Steve Gilliard's unrivalled News Blog (including the recently linked at this very site Sara Robinson) soldier on in his name.
I used to link to The News Blog all the time. If you are wondering about what it was, or who Steve was, I blogged about it at my old site here and here.
I just added The Group News Blog to my Blog Corral.
You may now resume normal programming.
