I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Mark Foley (R-Fla.) an attempt to change the subject? If so it was a stupid one that went terribly wrong for the Republicans.
