Today I had the privilege of meeting Jack Wheeler, of To The Point News. If you haven’t heard of him, check out his site (some of which requires a subscription). I will eventually be blogging more about our meeting.
But, first, a funny story. After we had been talking for a while, I mentioned our blog. Jack stopped me and said, “Wait a minute. What’s your blog’s name?”
“Gates of Vienna,” I replied.
“You’re Gates of Vienna?!?”
“I thought that was a European blog!”
I told him that a lot of people think that. So, just for the record:
We’re not European.
Well, not counting Fjordman, LN, Kepiblanc, Zonka, XY, Phanarath, Rune, and all the other Scandinavians who guest-post here.
Dymphna claims Irishness, but she was born in the USA. My mongrel ancestors (English, Scots, German, French, etc.) all crossed the Big Pond at least 150 years ago.
We’re bloody Yanks. We have no right to bloviate on matters European, but we do, anyway.
