George Orwell To Get A Blog

by Stanely Stuyvesant · August 8, 2008

    1984 cartoonWell this is exciting...Author George Orwell (who was really Eric Arthur Blair) has a son who:

    "...could give both Christopher Hitchens and Andrew Sullivan a massive, unrepentant for former support of the Bush administration hard-on" [Gawker]

    Starting tomorrow, Richard Blair (his son) will be unleashing previously unpublished George Orwell diaries  online as a daily blog! [NPR] The first entry will be exactly 70 years from when Orwell wrote it on Aug. 9th, 1938.

    Who doesn't, from time to time, feel like they're living in a "1984" novel?  I am looking forward to the new additions that will be part of George Orwell's GOOGLE fame....the ULTIMATE BIG BROTHER!
