Fred Thompson for president?

That's what Stephen Bainbridge wants, and it sure makes sense to me. (via Instapundit) Thompson had a cautiously upbeat take on President Bush's "surge" speech, which he thought demonstrated a "new attitude." See National Review. (It didn't strike me as very new.) Well, partisan loyalty is a virtue -- at least for those who are running for office. I don't make much of the fact that Thompson is an accomplished actor (in movies and on NBC's Law and Order), but I do think he is the kind of no-nonsense mainstream conservative who could appeal to a wide range of voters. I ranked Newt Gingrich at the top of my list of prospective GOP candidates last month, and Thompson would be a strong second at this point.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
