PSA: Vacation plans and 4&20 b’birds’ guest bloggers

I’m going on a much-needed vacation next week, and I’m planning on taking a break from everything, especially blogging. There’s not much time before the general election, and the ugliness is just beginning, I’m afraid. I sorely need this week with my family, getting all the Republican toxins out of my system.

I’ll be back October 11.

But have no fear, 4&20 blackbirds will go on without me. I’ve contacted a number of friends to put up posts while I’m gone, so that you all will still have something to read with your morning coffees. Some of the perspectives should be interesting, and I hope you’ll be intrigued by the change of pace.

Anyway, meet the guest bloggers…

On Monday, you’ll be hearing from Kevin K of Catch who I dragged from blogo-retirement. Kevin is a mensch who graciously allowed me to cut my blog teeth on his site. Former freeper-hunter, rumor has it he’s gone over to the dark side and is now a neocon. (Joking.)

On Tuesday, Julie Fanselow will be posting. Julie is the proprietor of Red State Rebels and official blogger of Larry Grant’s campaign at Grassroots for Grant, and the center of Idaho’s progressive blogosphere that’s playing an integral part in Grant’s challenge for a historically conservative seat.

On Wednesday, Jaime of Cece-in-MT will take the reigns. Jaime’s a newcomer to the Montana blogosphere, but she’s already made a splash with her posts dissecting the legal issues surrounding Howie Rich’s social experiments…er, “citizen’s” initiatives.

Thursday features another Catcher, Lady Penelope, who created Fat Jerry, a haven for Catch refugees and an old-school web-based community where the funny is (almost) never forgotten.

Friday marks Ty Alper’s blogging debut. Besides law professing, he’s a dad of two, an avid sports fan, and a good friend.

Another debut blogger will appear on Monday, October 9. Meet Widowmaker: a conservative-leaning Montana-based commentator with ties to the intelligence and national security communities. Expect some good, practical advice on how to effectively combat terror.

I can’t promise there won’t be other guest bloggers checking in, or that I might be tempted back for a post or two, but there should be plenty to read while I’m gone. Enjoy!
