I have the Conn!

I recall in the film Jerry Maguire, Cuba Gooding Jr's character talked about "having the Quan," which had something to do with self-confidence and positive thinking.

I however, have the Conn - thanks to the good Captain, Ed Morrissey. This apparently means I am at the helm of his fine vessel. Now that I'm here, I don't know what the man was thinking! I don't know a rudder from know, the thing that shifts a sail? Ah, well. Expect no sea-faring metaphors for this weekend.

Ed has graciously handed over control of Captains Quarters Blog to yours truly until sometime Sunday. I was very thrilled and flattered to be asked by Ed to do some guest posting for him while he and his First Mate go help young couples find their sea-legs on an Engaged Encounter Weekend. Ed is my first and favorite Blogfather, a first-rate writer and researcher, even-handed and generous. He's also very kind. I hope I can do well by him and his blog. Certainly I have very big shoes to keep moving.

I will be cross-posting between here and The Anchoress Blog, particularly if I write anything halfway decent. But if you have no idea who I am (and that's quite likely the case) and would like to get a sense of what I'm about, here are some blasts from my past:

Wealth Porn and Cognitive Dissonance at the Grey Lady

It Starts Not with a "Give Me" but with a "Please Take"

Faith and Reason and Forced Conversions

Prod Mary

Tina Brown, Our Lady of the Air Kiss

Bill Clinton's Captive Heart

Oriana and Rosie; Two Women of the Left

We'll not see the like of RFK Again, to Our Detriment

Media Whores and their Creators

"Whatever," he smiled

The Essential President Bush

"Breeders" infected with "Feeders"

Let's cast off, then!
