Blog doings

Kos points out an interesting new blog called the Swing State Project, which aims to analyze the upcoming Presidential race in 19 states that were decided by less than 5 points in 2000 (full methodology explained here). It looks pretty promising so far.

You’ve probably already heard that Jeff Cooper is going on an indefinite hiatus due to some unfortunate health problems his young son is experiencing, but in case you haven’t, drop by and leave him a note of well-wishes.

Jim Capozzola is also going through some hard times, in his case more of an economic nature. He’s got a PayPal button if you are inclined to toss him a few coins.

There is some good news out there: Dwight Meredith, who retired his well-respected PLA blog recently, is now guest posting (second chairing?) at Wampum. It’s good to have him back.

Finally, I linked to one of his posts earlier, but I want to give a full intro to Jonathan Ichikawa, who is now the third current or former member of the Rice MOB to enter the blog world, joining myself and Doug Haunsperger. He’s doing the philosophy grad student thing at Brown and has some interesting stuff on his blog. Check it out.

UPDATE: I am covered with shame as Michael (a one-year MOBster himself from before my tenure there) reminds me in the comments that my own blogfather, Mike Tremoulet, is yet another former MOB member. Argh! Sorry about that, Mikey!

    I was only in the MOB for a season, but didn’t you meet Mikey on the practice field?

    Back to France with you!

    OT, except that it involves Kos, is anyone else having trouble viewing/posting comments on his site? My old Win98 machine, on which I usually do my political surfing, runs out of resources, demonstrably on long comment threads, since Kos has switched to Scoop. The machine doesn’t have that problem on any other site… ever. I’ve written Kos, but I’m curious if anyone else has run into this. Am I going to have to buy a new personal personal computer?
