I have to say that the response here to the first couple of days at Cosmic Variance has been wonderful. We especially appreciate everyone who mentioned our new existence on their own blogs. My, it sure is easier to get a running start these days than it was back in the Wild West pioneering era of the blogosphere (last year). As time goes on and we get into a groove, hopefully a fuller picture of who we are and what we have to say will begin to emerge. Which leads me to return the favor: please welcome another new group blog, The UnCapitalist Journal, dedicated to economic and political issues from a fettered-free-market perspective. (I'm presuming that "fettered" is the opposite of "unfettered." We need some better names here.) One of the contributors is Lindsay Beyerstein of Majikthise, who seems to be aiming to contribute to every blog in existence. You go, Lindsay. Shakespeare's Sister, kind enough to give us a shout-out (well, she's from Chicago, we stick together), also points to Our Word, a community site for women's voices. Hopefully some men will read it, too. Perhaps they will learn, for example, that abandoning popular liberal stances, like support for abortion rights, is not the way to win more elections.
