The Anchor in the Corner

Justin Katz

A beleaguered — but hearty and hopeful — welcome to readers of NRO's Corner. By way of assuring Mr. Ponnuru that there do exist conservatives in Rhode Island, I note that this blog is the product of three of them and that there are at least four other rightish bloggers in the state. Away from the computer, I personally know about a dozen people who voted for President Bush.

If you're among the 161,636 Bush-voting Rhode Islanders whom I haven't mentioned, I hope you'll make a point of checking in on us and helping to make the conservative discussion more than a whisper in this state.

I should note for the millions beyond our borders that we don't intend to limit our writing to local issues. And even with those, of course, we could use all the help we can get...

Comments, although monitored, are not necessarily representative of the views Anchor Rising's contributors or approved by them. We reserve the right to delete or modify comments for any reason.

I caught the link for your website from the Corner at National Review. I had a great time reading the postings this is going to be a great site for all freedom loving Rhode Islanders

Another visitor from NRO. I'm just curious if there will be a lot of 'Family Guy' jokes on this blog.'Cos that'd be shweet.

As a newcomer to RI, I've secretly wondered what the local populus thinks of FG. Back in Florida we laughed ourselves dead over a few episodes.

Glad to find your blog (through NRO). I am a displaced Red Stater now here in RI due to work relocation-- and it's a lonely place for a conservative.

I'm hoping your blog will stave off my recent inclinations to start blogging myself-- that compulsion of a lost man to shout into the hostile wilderness...

Another NRO junkie reporting in. Hallelujah, hail, and well-met, Anchor Rising; you're bookmarked.

And Benjamin, why be silent? Start your own blog. Goodness knows there are enough liberal ones out there.

I wouldn't know-- I'm not reading them! ;)
