Goodbye Evans-Novak….

Before there were blogs like the Arkansas Times Blog or  Blakes Think Tank or my own, there was the Evans-Novak Political Report. This was a political sheet that started in 1967 with Rowland Evans and Robert Novak, the first year of Ronald Reagan’s 1st term as Governor of California. Mind you, Novak’s conservatism was as slanted as my progressive outlook. But it was good to read and this tip sheet got some good tips before the major media outlets.

But all that ended this week. With Robert Novak battling a strong disease he has not been able to do the job. To his credit, Novak left the blog to Tim Carney. Carney did a good, less biased job, but the absence of Evans and Novak have removed the flavor of the tip sheet.

So….Novak pulled the plug. We sure will miss this source and pray for healing mercy from God for Robert Novak….both of his current affliction and his recurrent conservatism.
