My old friend Marc goes PJ

Marc Cooper – someone I have known since, in the immortal words of the late Chick Hearn, “Hector was a pup!” (whatever that means) – has joined PJMedia as a member of our editorial board. Marc’s journalism career is long and (although he might hate the word) distinguished, his blog always the site of the most spirited debate. Marc and I do not see eye-to-eye the way we used to on everything (although we do on some things), but we have preserved the ability to make each other laugh. I think there’s a lesson in that.

UPDATE: Because I have been in NY and running around like the proverbial headless chicken, I neglected to note that Austin Bay has also been profiled as an editorial board member (scroll down). I feel a little guilty because Austin is a friend of mine and but am reassured by the suspicion that his superb work in many fields is already familiat to readers of this site. If it isn’t, it should be.
