Belmont Club – A Work of Art (if the subject matter were not so serious)
“If you want to read perhaps the best writing in the blogosphere, “Belmont Club” is the place to go.”
Are there ANY bloggers out there who write as well as Wretchard of the Belmont Club?
Are there ANY bloggers out there who have his apparent depth of access to resources?
If there are, they are few and far between. One source might be the DoD, the US Department of Defense, which carries many positive stories about Iraq not carried by the new media.
The high quality of Wretchard’s writing and his access to information seem enormous,
as the following blogs have commented or demonstrated previous to the Law Pundit:
American Digest writes:
“Many in the blogsphere write well, but few write as well and fewer still better. The prose of Wretchard is, on a day to day basis, clean, clear and spare with just a soupcon of poetry thrown in — not just in his frequent pointed quotations from the masters. It’s a prose that illuminates not only the insights but the great range of his mind….
Since December 26, 2003, The Belmont Club has received over 2 million visits. It easily deserves four times that number in the coming year. Pass it on and help make it happen.”
Magic in the Baghdad Cafe writes:
“Wretchard of the Belmont Club displays an informed and enlightened sense of what is happening in the war in Iraq. Proper analysis is in the details; his description of the “big picture” through careful reading of available information and the historic underpinnings of the situation is remarkable.
Read this blog. A better source of information and analysis one would be hard pressed to find.
And the writing is art.”
The Remedy writes about Belmont:
“Wretchard, as usual, thinks and writes well. About most of the Belmont Club’s weblog posts, Portia in Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice would have said: “Good sentences, and well pronounced.” It turns out, Portia frequented Venice but lived in Belmont, a town famous for lovely reason and music. Belmont, Portia, and their qualities are part of, somewhat rare in, a bit removed from “this great world.”
It would be good to keep nuclear weapons away from militant Islam, but as Portia notes, “If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches, and poor men’s cottages princes’ palaces.” “
Right on the Left Beach writes:
“Wretchard writes extremely well and seems to have insights into what is happening during this troublesome time in Iraq.”
According to Technorati there are 1453 links from 1107 sources to the Belmont Club.
