Shoo, started blogging and drug quite a few of us into cyberspace. Yes, I did discount his influence on my blogging, but that was tongue in cheek.
Shoo was thanked for his tenacity and candor by a Progressive blogger named Stella swiftspeech. Stella received the Uber Blogger award.
I agree that Shoo has an excellent command of presenting and defending his political beliefs, in a thoughtful diplomatic style.
Something I wished I shared. He is more Fred Astaire to my Quasimodo (dance analogy there).
So Congrats Shoo.
