Dead and Gone Pundit

Happy Fun Pundit was one of the first blogs I bookmarked, once I discovered the blogosphere. It's been fizzled out and gone for a long time. Sad. Thanks for all the laughs, guys.

Civilization still calls

What kind of blogger would manage to land a prestigious slot, and quit after only one post?

O Allah Where Art Thou?

Retired blogger Allah kept a vestigial blogspot presence after he took his main site down several months ago. He posted to it once a fortnight or so, in between commenting on everyone else's blog.

So this evening I went over to see what if anything was new, and was startled to discover that he's apparently gone, because it is now a cheesecake link farm, masquerading as a personal blog. Pretty sneaky, spammers.

Bad netizen. No link.

Red Six to be Deep Sixed?

Well this is certainly sad if it turns out to be true. Dauntless tanker Neil Prakash is probably going to take down his blog, due to operational security static. His site is home to some of the best first-person battlefield bloggage of the entire Iraq conflict, especially the bits from Fallujah. If any stray reader of mine sees this in time, click through without delay and save, save, save! His story deserves to be spread far & wide.
