Somewhat to my surprise, several Blogcritics and some readers have indicated they weren’t aware that I write for MSNBC.com. I am forever indebted to Jan Herman for bringing me in to the fold, and I miss his editorial expertise greatly – be sure to check out Jan’s great Straight Up column here on Blogcritics.
