Toast Or Roast: Ann Althouse

More

Well, Andrew Sullivan was incomprehensibly mean to me when I got engaged and I never really understood the hostility. But the truth is, the husband I found through blogging found me through Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan's article in the NYT Magazine "This Is a Religious War" published shortly after the 9/11 attacks made a profound impression on the man I would later marry and led him to begin reading Andrew's blog and, from there, other blogs, including mine.

Me, I've been reading The Daily Dish since it began, and I keep reading and linking even though any given link of mine is likely to provoke one of my commenters to denounce me for linking to Sullivan. Andrew is always changing, and one could go through cycles of loving or hating him I especially love the Andrew Sullivan of "The Great Gay Debate"  but it's not really worth getting all exercised about which Andrew Sullivan we're reading today. We keep reading.

Read Ann at her eponymous blog.
