For Steve

Many in the blogs have noted the passing of blogger Steve Gilliard of The News Blog after his long battle with poor health. Some touching tributes can be found via Memeorandum and I urge you to read them all. For they are a testament to the profound impact that one voice can have on so many others. I first came across Steve's work a little more than a year ago and after that I was hooked. His inimitable style of cutting straight to the meat of a story won him many loyal friends and followers in the blogosphere. He wasn't afraid to call BS where he saw it and there is no doubt in my mind that were he still with us, he would do so on the latest bit of trumped up fear mongering.

Steve's motto was "We Fight Back". He did so against the lies, manipulations and distortions by our government and their sycophants in the media. With his passing, the burden to keep fighting falls to us. I know of no greater tribute to his spirit.

We'll miss you Steve. You've earned your rest. We'll take it from here.
