Steve Sailer, Journalist of Our Time

Cartoon by BALOO
Guys like Matt Drudge report the news and break stories. Bloggers like me comment on the news, and point you to the news as reported by Drudge and others. Steve Sailer pretty much does both. As in the title, he's the Journalist of Our Time.

One of Steve's strengths is seeing patterns. He finds relationships among events that most of us miss. And as an aspect of that, he's very interdisciplinary, relating politics, history, anthropology, sports, and a number of other fields that are seldom brought into focus together.

Me, now, I'm an old retired coot who blogs. I do my best to pass on the things I've learned in a clear and, when possible, humorous way. I'm no more a journalist than Limbaugh is — I'm a commenter and editorialist. Steve is journalist, reporter, commenter and editorialist, all rolled up together. And he does it full time. That's how he makes a living. So let's help him make a living. He's having a fund drive right now — he calls it "panhandling," so let's all go over to http://isteve.blogspot.com/ and kick in. I can't think of a better cause.

Need a sample? Here's a recent post where Steve puts the SPLC in perspective:

SPLC attacks Nicholas Wade's "Troublesome Inheritance"

The good old Southern Poverty Law Center is out to get Nicholas Wade:
Troublesome Sources: Nicholas Wade’s Embrace of Scientific Racism

In the ongoing on-going War on Racist Sexist White Men, the SPLC is the gold standard source since it's run by poor Southern blacks. As we all know, it was founded in 1957 by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and fought on the front lines during the great victories of the 1960s Civil Rights era. And, thus, the SPLC is legendary in the history of the Sixties.

Oh, wait, no ... that was the SCLC, not the SPLC. Funny how their acronyms are so similar. Must be a coincidence. *
