Not sure who exactly this would be for, but there was a regular commenter at zerohedge who dropped off the map a couple of months ago. It was a severe blow to my politics, foreign policy, and military information intake. The guy is/was really knowledgeable and a great writer too. I learned so much over the past couple of years from reading his comments. Anyway, after some googling today I just found that he is still a regular commenter, only now at moonofalabama (which I knew - sort of a breakaway crowd from the old billmon blog - but never read religiously.) So happy to be able to read his thoughts again. His name at both sites is PavewayIV. Google can find his words with "site:moonofalabama.org pavewayIV" (and then you can click on Search Tools and then on Anytime to narrow the time range so you only find recent comment threads.) Worth a look if you're interested in geopolitics and suspect that the US MSM might not be teaching you what you should know.
forgot about that whiskey bar offshoot. billmon is active on twitter but that 140 character per post is really constraining. guess he likes the immediacy but i miss his longform posts.
