Fellow FireDogLake alumnus TRex (short for "Thesaurus Rex") has taken a giant step out on his own with the creation of his new blog, "I Am TRex", located at http://www.iamtrex.com/
Many who were on the campaign trail last year during the exciting senate Primary and General Election will remember TRex, who spent considerable time in Connecticut covering the campaign for FireDogLake. TRex's biting wit (what other type of wit could a giant dinosaur possible have?) and satirical posts have been a mainstay at FDL for a long time. His "Late Night" and "Late Late Night" posts were often a final stop on my blogging rounds.
In his own words, here's why he's starting the blog:
I was finding that my tendency to speak my mind and damn the consequences was running counter to the goals of a high-traffic group blog. FDL is going to be heading into an exciting new phase of its existence and I wish them nothing but the best.Holy shit! Having read many of his posts over the last several years, I can only imagine the stuff he's going to put up on his new blog now that he has complete free rein.
...and I'm looking forward to it!
Go over to I Am TRex and see his new home!
