I have the distinct honor and privilege of being one of the people that will be trying to fill his shoes while he is vacationing:
So I’m going to be stepping away from the blog for a couple weeks as I take a long-delayed vacation. But as I’ve said, I won’t be leaving you empty-handed. I have assembled a diverse group of writers to hold down the fort over the next two weeks.Here's hoping that I don't embarrass myself, or Wisconsin, too much. And who knows, isn't this how all the great writers get discovered?
Chris Liebenthal: I very much wanted to elevate a state blogger and showcase some of the great and often unrewarded work that goes on there. With the Wisconsin recalls in full swing, I thought that would be a great place to start. Chris has his own blog called Cognitive Dissidence, and he is one of the leading experts in the blogosphere on Walkergate, the continuing investigation into corruption at Scott Walker’s Milwaukee County executive office and on his gubernatorial campaign. It’s a really deep story with a lot of tentacles, and I hope Chris can make sense of it for you.
