Quick Notes: Babies and Books

I hope this edition of Quick Notes is exciting even though I don't plan on covering very many political items. Enjoy!

Baby. To those of you who know me in the real world, this won't be a breaking news item. The rest of you may be a little surprised. My family is about to increase by one! My wife is very pregnant right now, and we could be having a baby any day now. Last night we had a false alarm that had us at the hospital until 10 PM. I wanted to share this with you in case you sign on here one night, looking for the latest and greatest political debate only to find no new posts. I plan to keep posting, but have to take care of my family first. If you sign on and it has been a day or two since my last post, fear not! I will return!

Books. In case you haven't noticed, I like to write book reviews on this site. I try to keep them related to our discussions on here. However, all of them are from a point of view that interests me. I thought I would ask if anyone is interested in either 1) writing a book review of a book they have read recently that is relevant to this site, but might have been missed by me, or 2) suggesting a book for a discussion on here. Either suggestion needs to be a book that is relevant some how to this site. It does not have to be one from my conservative point of view. If you know of one that is from a different point of view, but would like to write a review of it, or would like to suggest it to the group for a discussion, let me know. I would love to feature it on here.

Finally... I am looking for someone to write a post on here from a point of view that is different from mine. I am exploring a few other blogs that I frequent, but if a reader would like to take a turn and post here, I would love to have you author a post. The rules are simple, write enough to explain your viewpoint, keep it clean, and no insulting the other readers. Let me know if you are interested!

For either the book or the guest viewpoint, comment in here, or email me.

I'd like to do a guest post sometime. I don't have any specific topics that come to mind right now, but I'll be thinking about it as I read more of your posts!

I have some topics if Rebecca doesn't beat me to it. Congrats on the new addition.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I posted a picture of our new little one on the front page this morning.

Anytime either of you want to post, I would love to have your thoughts. Just send me an email with what you want to write and I will put it up here.
