Keep Emptywheel Rolling

If you've been reading this blog for a while you're probably aware of my admiration for the work of Marcy Wheeler, AKA emptywheel. Whether it's on the Scooter Libby trial, the economic meltdown's effect on Detroit, or on government use of torture, Marcy's connected the dots in a way most of us only wish we could. She's certainly given me cause to praise her talents:

Emptywheel, demonstrating the memory for detail that makes most of us feel like Parkinson's victims, provides some insight into Pete Hoekstra:

Time And The State of Journalism In America

I keep using words like "relentless" and "must read" to describe her work. When it comes to demolishing the artifices that our where politicians and their sycophants in the press want to construct for you, she's been a one-woman wrecking crew.

If you don't get over to FireDogLake very often (and who among us has the time to keep up with it?) you might have missed the fact that they're running a fund drive to enable Marcy to work full time with a couple of assistants. Needless to say, I think it's well worth a few bucks to keep her doing what she does.

So go on over there and give a little if you can.
