Another Great Addition to the Blogosphere

Dave Guarino, former chief political reporter for the Boston Herald (and before that, a reporter at the Lowell Sun, where I first met him), left the Herald a couple of years ago to work as a flak.

Flak, of course, is a term of endearment, since I used to be one-- some would say I still am. Guarino proved to be as skilled a flak as he was a reporter. As a scribe, he was always smart, tough and fair; as a flak, he remembered what he'd learned as a reporter.

One more cool thing about Guarino: He's a Springsteen fan.

And now, he has a blog, full of great politico-journalistic insight. Go check it out... it's worth your time. Guarino's only been up for a few days, and already he has a wealth of terrific analysis.

Thanks to my friend Seth Gitell for, um, heralding Guarino's arrival in the blogosphere.

In more writing news, another friend, author J.A. Konrath, announced on his blog that he has another blog (sort of). Konrath launched The Anonymous Publishing Vent Club, where everything is, well, anonymous. J.A. reiterates that he's just hosting this, not providing the content, though we'll never know because it's anonymous, will we, Joe?

To my Catholic eyes, this is like confession. Without the penance, remorse, or human interaction with the priest. I think all of this is good. The vent club will not be good, but it will be good fun.
