It was quite a while back that I invited Lyle to blog here. Via many long conversations and numerous lengthy emails it was clear he had penetrating, even brutal, insight that others would benefit from. He told me (IIRC) for me to offer him this forum was like the P.J. O’Rourke line about giving power and money to the government. But that he would think about it. Within a day or two the temptation overcame him and he made his first post.
Lyle hasn’t posted that often and I always thought he was holding back some. But then he would get links to his posts from certain bloggers I had never gotten links from and that made me a little bit envious. Still, the razor sharp penetration, straight to the bone, wasn’t on display as much as I expected.
His most recent post–now that’s what I’m talking about.
