A Unified Theory of Benen

A UNIFIED THEORY OF BENEN…. I wanted to briefly introduce myself and thank Steve for his probably foolish decision to trust me with the keys. I write as publius at Obsidian Wings along with Hilzoy and other questionable characters like Eric Martin and Von.

Anyway, I’ve been a longtime fan of Steve’s — and I was a loyal reader of Carpetbagger (his old blog) for years. During that time, I concluded that he’s actually a machine — a non-carbon based Terminator-like entity. It’s the only plausible explanation.

Seriously, he’s the hardest working man in the blogosphere, so I hope he actually takes a much-deserved break.
