Captain Ed, the extraordinarily astute and hard—working proprietor of Captain's Quarters blog is joining together with the Heritage Foundation, the extraordinarily effective and influential think tank in Washington, DC. This is a match made in heaven, and both sides deserve congratulations for their excellent taste in partners. Here is how Captain Ed describes the arrangement:
The Heritage Foundation has asked me to partner with them to blog on spending—related matters. I cannot tell you how gratified I am to be working with the experts at the premiere conservative think tank. I have appeared at a handful of Heritage Foundation events, and they have always treated me like a member of the team —— and now I can contribute as such.
My work will appear on Heritage's blog, and it will draw heavily on the experts at Heritage itself. And why not? With the lineup of researchers and writers at their disposal, I'd be crazy not to do so —— and you'd be crazy to miss it. More than any other aspect of the deal, I look forward to learning as much as possible from their terrific line—up.
I will continue writing for myself at CQ, of course, and want to make clear that while I may address similar topics here —— and will certainly link to my work at Heritage —— the work that appears on this blog will have no relation to the work I do for the Heritage Foundation. My blogging at Heritage represents the team effort, and my blogging at CQ represents the unvarnished Ed.
I know CQ readers will find this as exciting as I do —— and I hope to see you all at the Heritage Foundation!
I find it exciting, too. When first rate people collaborate, good things happen. Heart—felt congratulations!
