Arthur Chrenkoff’s excellent Good News from Iraq makes it to the Wall Street Journal!

And here’s the blog-hosted version of the same piece -- with links to previous Good News instalments.

Congratulations, Arthur! Blogspot to the WSJ, that's real accomplishment.

Congrats to Arthur and kudos to James Taranto the editor of Opinion Journal who is way ahead of his time in understanding and recognizing the contributions of bloggers to the debates of the day on all issues. If i am not mistaken he's published Den Beste, Totten and Simon at least once each.

A big congrats. From a waste of cyberspace to a waste of paper!

Ahh Miranda, so good to hear your sweet tones.

How it must gall you to hear the good news that emerges from Iraq and that, now, the good news is getting wider circulation.

Never mind dear, hitch your wagon to the stars of Kim and Castro. Their countries are still despotic shitholes: no chance of good news from them.

Miranda is just worried that the liner in her blogparrot cage won't be changed if people's newspapers actually publish something worthwhile.

Congrats to Arthur on being published, he deserves it.

I guess I should also be glad that Miranda is back to desperately trying to irritate us. We should only worry when she thinks all is right with the world enough for her to abandon the 24 hour troll crusade.

Miranda, if you weren't a man, I'd marry you.

...Then I'd leave you a couple of years later for your younger sister.
