My good friend Leo asked me recently for a few political blog / blogger recommendations, and I did duly tender him with a list, but I neglected to mention one of the most important of them all; The News Blog / Steve Gilliard.

Sadly Steve passed away last June, but his legacy survives. For anyone unfamiliar but interested in the writing of a “a combative and influential blogger on the left“, a recent post on The Group News Blog (The Writings of Steve Gilliard — 101) simplifies the task of locating his work considerably.

The first comment from the above post;

Looks like I’ll be busy cruising the “Intertubes”. A PDF of all his writings would be quite a project, anybody thought of that?

That gives me an idea

    Would you be kind enough to consider signing up as one of our ‘1001 Generous Bloggers’.

    The site is at http://mencap.wordpress.com and is a bit of fun to raise money for Mencap, a charity that works with people with learning disabilities.

    We’ve not long started so we have a long way to go, please take a look and see what you think.

    Incidentally, I picked up your blog because of the ‘blogging’ tag on your recent post, via link on the wordpress homepage.

    Anything you can do to spread the word is also appreciated.

    Kind regards.
