As you know, I welcome the participation of conservative/libertarian students from Cornell. This not only helps me out, it also gives students who otherwise are isolated in a sea of liberalism an outlet to develop their skills and political outlooks in a setting in which they can be challenged by fellow conservatives/libertarians.
Michael is from Lewisburg, PA, and is entering his second year at Cornell’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations (where she works). Michael already has cut his baby blogging teeth at the Cornell Insider, the blog of the conservative Cornell Review. Michael’s post about Keith Olbermann’s recent visit to Cornell got him a HotAir link, which is enough to addict anyone to blogging.
Michael also is active in the Cornell Republicans, and this summer will be interning at the conservative National Center for Public Policy Research.
When Michael first contacted me, he wrote: “I’m an admitted news junkie, especially when it comes to politics, and I read LI pretty regularly.” Yeah, I’m that easy. A few pats on my back, and you’re in.
Please welcome Michael Alan.
