We Liked Him When He Was Angry

As many of you may have heard, liberal/progressive blogger Steve Gilliard died over the weekend, succumbing to his long illness. Steve’s blog was a surprising mix of news, analysis, military history, cooking tips, New York politics, and anger. That’s what I liked most about his writing, the anger. When so many liberal blogs were wishy-washy, or moderate, or merely snarky, Steve was quick call people out on their bullshit, loudly. A smart guy who let his passion run through him, wasn’t afraid to step on toes or make enemies when trying to debunk lies or make a point.

We weren’t on the same ideological page, but Steve was against a lot of the same things I’m against. And sometimes, seeing someone scream shit at fuckers you can’t stand either can be a wonderful thing.

At the link above, you can donate money to Steve’s family for his funeral, if you like.
