As the forces of nature marshall for an attack on the east coast, I thought I’d call attention to Belfer’s new blog, Power & Policy (via SW). If it becomes a breakout hit, we just might have to think our whole lack of institutional affiliation approach.

My parents got an advanced taste of devastation when a microburst completely blocked their summer house from the road by taking down a ton of trees. I got them out with my trusty Subaru and an extra-large ice coffee. Because nothing stops a man with a gay-friendly car and lots of caffeine.

We’ve stockpiled wine, flashlights, and graphic novels. What about the rest of our right-coast bloggers and readers?
