Bona Fortuna to The Jeffersonian and to The Red State

Siddhartha was correct, all things are temporary and so it shall be with SA Election 2005. The blog will live on until a couple of weeks after the election/runoff to facilitate post-mortem commentary. Afterward it will be archived and its author will reveal his identity and the reason for the pseudonym.

The historic Marcus Tullius Cicero was an admirer of the historic Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus. Both were citizens of courage and integrity who valued the Republic over personal ambition. While Cicero did not revile Antony in his famous Philippics for the purpose of homage to Cincinnatus; he would indeed have been flattered to be associated in the minds of his audience with that great champion of the Republic.

Bona Fortuna to The Jeffersonian, and to The Red State for speaking truth to power.
