The blogger is Michael Miller, who blogs from South Carolina--reason enough to check him out. He is a prolific blogger whose interests seem to center on liberalism and the state of the country and the usual horrors of the Bush regime. Recent postings include faith-based initiatives, Total Information Awareness (remember that), and the Patriot Act. He functions more in the Atrios mode--posting info he's found that you aren't likely to have. If you scroll down the site, I'll bet you haven't heard of half the stuff he's posted.
