Down below, I have a post ripping on Joe. However, I must say the quality and righteousness of Joe's writings that I've been seeing lately have improved. He seems to have lost the reflexive liberal-bashing. And he's been saying the words! (I'd show links, but they're not all available just now).
I'm still a bit concerned he doesn't critique official "news tips" sufficiently, but one step at a time.
Attaboy, Joe! Keep it up!
