Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

Anybody still reading? Yes, I'm still alive. Just been busy, and somewhat low on blogging steam. But I do want to draw the attention of anyone who does still come here to a new blog, the Tough Democrat. I know the guy behind it, but I can't say who he is cause he's chosen to be pseudonymous for now. I will say that he's very politically savvy, very smart, very Democratic, and does a mean Elvis impersonation. I've had a number of spirited email exchanges with him over off the cuff remarks made here that he called me on, and I'd definitely recommend checking him out. I know I will.
