I followed this link (from somewhere --- sorry, I forget who sent me) to a Google blog search for Steve Gilliard and I am absolutely gobsmacked at the huge outpouring of affection, respect and remembrance from all over the left blogosphere. It is truly amazing.

There is very little coming from the right, for which I'm grateful actually. The few who have written anything are mostly awful, especially the predictable unpleasantness from some of their commenters. I won't link them.

Having said that, I think it's important to highlight a couple of respectful tributes from people on the right who read Steve's blog and considered him a worthy adversary:Dean Barnett and Armed Liberal, who honor Steve for his writing and his knowledge of warfare. Good for them.
