The Virginia Blogosphere has grown greatly in the last couple years; sadly, it must at times also lose members at times. The Old Dominion Blog Alliance is losing one of its greatest blogs, Sic Semper Tyrannis
. Addison, Old Zach, and Lighthorse Harry have all done an exceptional job with this blog. Sadly, I never got to know Addison, but Old Zach and Lighthorse Harry are great friends who I know have big things in store for them in the future. Both are born leaders, and I would not at all be surprised to see either of them on a ballot one day (going by their real names of course). Lighthorse Harry
I have known for nearly four years, and he has always been very supportive. I have not known Old Zach
for quite as long, but he is very engaging, and even encouraged me and a few other blogs written by college students to join the ODBA, something I still take as a great compliment. As their lives get busier (something I am very familiar with recently), they have found that they cannot make blogging a priority; that is all right, we all have to make tough decisions like that in life. But they have both made a great contribution to Virginia politics, and I am sure they will continue to do so. Make us proud guys!
As something of a final gift, Old Zach chronicled his thoughts on Virginia Republicans this past week. Here are each of the parts.Part I: Republican MalaisePart II: What is a Republican?Part III: What's Wrong With NOVA?Part IV: Who is Our Leader?Part V: What Are Our Goals?Part VI: Thoughts on the Blogosphere
