Rex is the alternate point of view the world needs.

Forces you to think. Disagree if you must, but listen (or read) what he has to say, you should.

Michael Maslowski ,

This is a masterpiece of political journalism

Occasionally, speaking with a tone of derision and mockery, but in reality providing a great deal of insight into a realm of modern politics, painstakingly seeking reason in the current of plentiful events (both national & worldwide). Rex Murphy is one of its own kind. A world-class narrator and wordsmith. A must-have for those seeking reality check in the plethora of dubious affairs staged on the social and political scenes of our times. One may or may not agree with his opinion, but ignoring his voice is second to impossible. Simply riveting.

Thank you Rex. You're doing a great job.
