Although I rarely agree with his specific viewpoints, and seriously question how someone can be conservative, a devout Catholic, and openly gay all at the same time, I have to admit that his blog discusses most of the issues I find interesting and thought-provoking. I am a daily visitor. Full disclosure: I remember Andrew when he was doing some postgraduate studies at Harvard in the 80s. He was highly intelligent, eloquent and completely provocative. More than once he'd be involved in a happy-hour exchange at the local neighborhood bar in The South End that became so heated that I was amazed that fisticuffs never resulted, though several scuffles occured. At the time I found him incredibly sexy, witty but a completely misguided, overly-opinionated jackass. He defies easy analysis or pigeon-holing. If he can be maddeningly obtuse and naive at times (his ability to be shocked by the obvious makes me want to throw things at the computer screen), he can also be (occasionally) insightful and (one in a great while) spot-on, as in his essay on Barack Obama.
