Murdoc’s preparing for a two-week trip to the Pacific Northwest to attend his (smarter) brother’s wedding and basically vacation a bit while he’s at it. Though internet access will be available most of the time and he’ll post if and when he feels like it, he’s bringing in a couple of pinch hitters to help cover the stretch.
MO would like to introduce:
- Instapinch, a “transplanted southerner, former naval aviator, current naval reservist, single dad, right-wing reactionary and all-around adequate guy” that Murdoc had the pleasure to meet at the MilBlog conference last April. And the “former naval aviator” means F-14 Tomcats, in this case. None of that bug stuff. I had hoped that he could get me in touch with “Iceman” or Kelly McGillis or someone, but no dice.
- Nicholas in Australia. Though he blogs a bit at Smell of Freedom, you might be more familiar with Nicholas from the comments section here at MO and on various other sites around the ‘sphere. He’s contributed mightily to discussions on MO over the past couple of years and it should be great to see him taking the lead for a bit. He’s probably gonna spell “harbor” wrong and use words like “petrol” or some such nonsense, but just play along.
They’re going to tack a “posted by” note on the end of their entries, so if they happen to get all opinionated or anything, just consider the source. Murdoc prides himself on not rocking the boat and would hate to get a “rep” because someone else said something controversial…
