Heeeeere's Valerie

The big blog herewith announces that Post writer Valerie Strauss, no stranger to these electrons, will once again take on substitute Raw duties, starting Monday, presenting her pearls of wisdom and provoking all manner of debate and discussion in these parts. Valerie is an education writer here in the Newsroom of the Future, but she has done it all--working the Foreign Desk, covering everything under the sun here and on the wires, where she served as congressional correspondent, national security editor and in various other capacities. Valerie has been a substitute columnist over in Bob Levey's Washington and she's bailed me out here on the Raw board at least a couple of times.

I know you'll be kind to her and get into whatever comes our way. I'll be back in a couple o' weeks.

"I know you'll be kind to her"

You don't read the postings here much, do you?

Looks like Valerie is on vacation too.

Did you forget to give her the keys to the car?

Good grief, I could have written topics for ten blogs by now. Valerie, you can't hang with the big blog? Go get Leiby! We want substance!

Valerie: We've all done it, but try to set the alarm for Tuesday, okay?

So has anyone lost their pants lately? Quite frankly, it's too damn hot to wear pants, but I've compromised, I'm not wearing underware.

Ok, we'll have to do this one ourselves. So: the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688 was neither glorious nor a revolution. Discuss.
