Just wanted to say Happy New Year to all birdhouse readers, and to thank you for all of your comments in 2003. You’ve helped keep birdhouse interesting (I hope!) and the debate open. I can’t respond to all comments, but I do read and chew on everything that gets posted.
Comment of the Year (sorry, no prize involved :) goes to Chris Tweney for his notes on the post Dean Gets It. Excerpt:
–by massive public relations efforts – in Manufacturing Consent Chomsky and Herman point out that the Air Force, just one branch of the military, has a PR budget greater than that of all independent activist organizations put together. The “Mighty Wurlitzer” of the right, the talk-radio and fax/email/mail machine, is part of this.
Of course, if I had kept better track, there would be about two dozen Comments of the Year. Thanks everyone. Best wishes for a groovy ’04.
