Welcome to DCAT

I am Derek Catsam, formerly of the late, great History News Network blog Rebunk (More on my departure in a future post). This should be more of the same, except I'll be flying solo, at least for the time being. The boys from Rebunk and I are fine -- nothing happened on that front.

This will be a place where I, and hopefully we, will discuss and argue about history, politics, sports, books, and whatever else is on my mind. I will likely have regular features on books or movies and the like, which will be different from Rebunk. Another big difference will be that I am responsible for my own site maintenance, and at least at first things might be both a bit rocky and more than a little spartan. It will take a bit of time before most of you find me and probably longer before I become a regular stop, but I hope that happens.

Glad to find your new home. I'll be curious to see how soloing goes. I've considered it myself, but I'm not sure I have the time to make it worth others time. I hope this works out for you.

Oscar -- Thanks. I'm not so certain if I am up for it, but we'll see how it goes. it will be slow at first, but will surely pick up.

Was real sorry to see you go from HNN. Glad you have found a home here...hopefully many of those who admire and respect you will follow.

Nice to see that Theo kept Manny...although my White Sox pitchers are dreading facing them come October...

Ladies and gentlemen, the legendary Thunderstick is in the house. And it's great to see Greg, Oscar and Chris coming over. Please come visit regularly.

This would explain why there wasn't any post about the Rebunk Fantasy Fotball League. I should have suspected something was afoot. Good luck here.

Derek, I hope you are aware that there is a similarly titled blog with a similar address called D's Cat. I mistakenly linked it on my site. It was funny for a while until I got sick of reading about this person's cat. You're much more interesting.

Greg --
I find that endlessly amusing. I have added Tie 'Em Tight to the links, an unacceptable ommission at Rebunk.

Thanks, Derek. I always knew there was something deeply flawed about Rebunk.

Greg -- yeah, it was spelled B-R-U-S-C-. . . . .
