Was on bartcopnation for a while before moving over here (before Bartcop passed). Don't remember what made me switch, probably traffic. The bartcopnation site wasn't nearly as active. Still read Bartcop every day though!

Steve Gilliard's blog and Media Whores Online were all part of my morning fix. He was great.

along with Molly Ivin's and Media Whores Online were a daily ritual that is greatly missed.

Don't know how accurate it is, as I haven't read through it completely yet. Like many others here, I miss him greatly.

I enjoyed Bart back in the day. I don’t have any Chinaco, but raise a shot of Herra Dura Reposado to your memory.
