Hold the Presses! Copy Editor has Enlisted!

Hold the presses! The Copy Editor has enlisted! Wilmette sends its heartiest congratulations to this bright, young blogger who has heard his country's call. Suprisingly enough, he has eschewed a commision in favor of enlistment. For the reasons why, see his post. It is not surprising that he chose the Army.

For quite some time, the Left has tried to convince us that the "brightest and the best" never go to the military. We know this is a lie; patriotic young people from many backgrounds go to the military. While there may be more patriots among the less advantaged, there are many service members with great prospects and promise who understand that serving their country is a both a priviledge and an honor. Even the son of Chicago's patriotic Mayor Daley signed up, and is currently with an Army combat unit which has been reported to have been deployed to Afghanistan.

Several months ago we linked the Copy Editor's blog, Editcopy, on the Wilmette Blogroll. We were looking for a link to some meat-and potatoes political coverage for our readers and this blog fit the bill better than any other blog I had seen. While my politics tend Conservative, I like a balanced approach when reading analysis. There are great blogs on both the left and the right, but far too few look at any issue with an open mind.

We will miss the Copy Editor, but we know that by and by he will be back. He's not sure about blogging once he goes on active duty. Please stop by his blog and wish him Good Luck and Godspeed.

We are lucky to have people of Copy Editor's calibre heed the call of duty; it is news that gives renewed hope that our great country will remain safe and free for a long time to come.

Or even easier, take a screen shot and mail to to your gmail, where there is enough storage to keep everything safe while your are away! You are a great patriot!
