    Texas Gains Mark Finkelstein

    Texas Gains Mark Finkelstein

    Not long after starting this blog I received an e-mail from Mark Finkelstein, who writes for Newsbusters, and for a while, at his own blog, Finkelblog.

    Mark invited me on his long-running conservative talk show, The Right Angle, which had been on local Ithaca cable TV for over a decade.

    Two things surprised me.  First, that there was another on-the-record conservative in Ithaca.  Second, that someone would want to have me on his show.

    Since that first contact I have appeared on Mark’s show several times.  I was honored to be the guest on Mark’s last show earlier this week. 

    Mark always had an encouraging word about this blog, and has an indefatigable energy that is contagious.  In addition to his business developing and operating a student apartment complex, Mark is a pilot, and a writer.

    And Mark was the person who took upon himself the burden of publicly arguing for the conservative position in public debates at Ithaca High School and elsewhere.  If ever there were a hopeless and thankless task, preaching conservatism in Ithaca is it, but Mark relished the challenge.

    And now after 25 years in Ithaca, Mark is fulfilling the dream of approximately one-half of Northeasterners.  He’s moving to Texas. 

    And better yet, Mark is moving to a community with a private airstrip so he can walk out his door and get into his plane and fly away.  Texas must be a really large country for such a thing to be possible.

    I will miss having Mark in Ithaca, and I wish him well in reality.

    I hope it isn't Austin(180 sq. miles surrounded by reality) or Berkeley East.

    Where in Texas?

    Well, we're no Mark Finkelstein, but for our (local) take on your post, Professor, see One of Nine

    Well, Professor, we're no Mark Finkelstein, but you're not alone in Tompkins County. For our take on this post, see our blog, One of Nine: http://oneofnine.info/oneofnine/node/208

    Here's hoping you relocate to Texas, too. We can use all the hard-working, informed, and articulate conservatives we can get!
