So far, so good, in terms of producing blogs for the Post’s On Faith forum. I’ve gotten more than 200 comments so far, most notably on entries about the Arizona shootings and Pope John Paul II getting beatified May 1. Am learning what produces lots of hits and what doesn’t. For those of you wanting to bookmark my posts, the best URL I’ve found so far is: http://newsweek.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/undergod/. For instance, here is where you’ll see my Ted Haggard post. Was up late doing that one.
I also want to thank a number of people who’ve stood with me for the past seven months; who checked in with me from time to time to see how I was doing and who didn’t drop me once I was laid off. Mike McManus, Linda Perry, Harold Johnson, Nancy and Rick Pearcey, David Virtue, Doug LeBlanc, Terry Mattingly, Cal Thomas, Mark Kellner, Kathy Thompson, Jason Method, John Phillips, Tony Carnes, Gail Dall, the Kuhner/Vuoto clan and Chris Currie are some of the folks who stand out. The Pearceys, by the way, are leaving the DC area after more than 20 years to teach in Minneapolis. Their press release is here. I’ll miss them.
The photo is of Veeka and me at the National Cathedral the day after Christmas.
