Scott Stops

Scott Horton's No Comment blog will greatly missed. It was the single most valuable resource in untangling the myriad of ways the Bush Administration has abused our laws.

More still, at least to me, No Comment was unique in that it proved that a blog could be intelligent, literate, artistic, visually attractive and challenging whilst still being readable. Mr. Horton set standard by which all future blogs should be judged. Two outstanding examples Scott's of rare ability show in its end: Marvell meets Lely and Brueghel in Marvell's "The Garden" and George Forster's Recollection of Benjamin Franklin.

No Comment in a large part inspired me to resume writing and to do it on a daily basis. It has even informed the look of this humble space.

Thank you and Godspeed, good sir.

+van Gogh's "Portrait of Dr. Gachet" seemed to appropriately expresses my mood upon learning this news.
