We try not to volunteer the fact, but the truth is that we don’t spend as much time reading other blogs as we’d like to. Of necessity, we devote most of the time we spend on our hobby to writing our own stuff, rather than reading other people’s. There is a lot of great commentary out there, however. This afternoon I came across The Diplomad, which describes itself as follows:
A Blog by career US Foreign Service officers. They are Republican (most of the time) in an institution (State Department) in which being a Republican can be bad for your career — even with a Republican President! Join the State Department Republican Underground.
Their writing is excellent; check it out. Maybe there is hope for the State Department after all!
