I Suppose I Deserved That
"Joe Guzzardi comments: Martin Kelly is the proprietor of the erratically anti-VDARE.COM (and anti-Brimelow) blog The G-Gnome Rides Out. Since we received Kelly’s letter, Mexico has withdrawn its plan to issue 70,000 maps to would-be border crossers.

We shall see. History takes a long time to write - but it's not perhaps an undertaking for flighty obsessive-compulsives like myself.
However, I link to VDare on the front page, have linked extensively to its articles, have linked to its fund-raising page and bear nothing but the greatest admiration for those of its writers fighting its battles on the ground, such as Randall Burns, D.A. King and Mr. Guzzardi himself. They might not welcome my admiration, but that's life; and Paul Craig Roberts' analyses of US job creation figures are always essential reading.
Being a VDare writer cannot be without its pitfalls. I received the following, unedited and uncensored, e-mail this morning after the letter was published, from one William Martin (mail him), -
