Terry Oglesby has done inducted me into the prestigious Axis of Weevil over at Possumblog. I’d link to the actual ceremony but, alas, his B*S permalinks seem not to be working, which I understand is often the case with the AOL of blogging. By merely linking to this fine picture of the esteemed John Moses Browning, may he rest in peace, I now join the ranks of such prominent bloggers as PoliBlogger, MommaBear, and Meryl Yourish. Shucks.

Update: “Billy Joe Bob” at Compleat Redneck weighs in on Alabama political scientists. I’d permalink but, well, you know the drill. The post is up near the top if you hurry.

    Welcome! Now you have to uphold the honor and tradition ensconced therein, even to the point of pain.

    Thanks. And, sadly, there’s a lot of pain in defending the Heart of Dixie.
