What I love about John Dickerson's Blog: Notions is his knack for gathering inspirational words or visuals. He is a journalist, author, commentator and man about Washington D.C. He has a dry wit and a keen intellect. He hosts the Political Gabfest Podcast at Slate.com with David Plotz and Emily Bazelon.
I got into the Big Picture Blog because of John and I love this post featuring a note of inspiration to the great saxophonist Steve Lacy from my favorite pianist, Thelonious Monk Like John said, I can read this all day. I became a musician to attempt to be as cool as Monk.
