Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

New to The Usual Suspects:


Anyone reading my blog for a period of time knows that I live and die by Politics. Sure, I occasionally skew out onto some tangents now and then, but I deal with some State of Fornicalia issues and, primarily, into larger overarching federal, economic and social issues.

My "The Usual Suspects" blogroll, therefore, reflects my Conservative political bent.

With this exclusive exception: I'd like to introduce my readership to Alaska Steve's "A Sense Of Place" blog, and thusly kindly insert his site into my personal U.S. blogroll. Steve's site is only the second non-political blog (like BWH) introduced into my blogroll. That in and of itself bespeaks volumes.


And here's how I found his blog: some recent issues had me staying at home for a while, so I managed to escape a bit into television and, by this venue, I found a real enjoyment in the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch. I got all caught up in crab fishing, Dutch Harbor, crab boats, Unalaska, the fisheries, the hard work, the Bering Sea, the controversy, the challenges, the independence of and nature of those who choose that life.

I found Steve's blog in this fashion. And Alaska Steve is the Real Deal: an articulate blogger actually living in Unalaska, near Dutch Harbor, and a hard-working fisherman to boot.

As he writes on his blog masthead: "Finding peace and new life on Unalaska Island." And his masthead photo: absolutely beautiful.

A wonderful bonus that I particularly appreciate: each and every photograph portrayed on his blog is a treasure in and of itself, taken with great care by Steve himself.

Alaska Steve may not know this, but his blog is a centering calm in a storm of reality.

Please, welcome Alaska Steve aboard, and visit his blog frequently.

"A Sense of Place", now that's a great blog, really enjoyed it.

Great pics and a great place to call home.

There's so much to life besides McCain and Obama, like living.

Great choice BZ.

BZ - sheesh, I'm not worthy! Thanks for your kind words and here are a few of my own - you are most certainly the only political blog on my blog roll, and you are now on a very short list of blogs I read regularly. Thanks for making sense of the crazy scary world that exists off this island as Alaskans in general love their local politics but often feel shut out from the national scene - Senator Steven's antics aside - as any national race is most assuredly over due to the time zone difference by the time I get off work and make it to the polls. Cheers and thanks again for such a warm introduction - Steve

Steve: refresh my memory - you're part of Pacific Standard Time, aren't you?

I will check him out now. Thank you. It is refreshing to find someone that is non-political that is genuinely a good read.

BZ - We're in Alaska Standard Time, another hour behind. I'm probably closer to the international dateline than I am to Seattle!
