Meet Joe Harvey - A New Writer For GM's Corner

This started out as a solo blog, just me and my thoughts, urged on by my friend and political opposite Marc Cooper and GM's Corner will be three years old this coming November.

Two years ago I went on a vacation and asked Woody if he would be willing to fill in for me while I was gone. The Woodster picked up the ball and ran 99 yards to a touchdown and I asked him to stay on. Woody graciously assented and he has been with me ever since. This Month, Woody has been with me for two years, his first post (here) somehow, due to the move to, got translated as having been written by me, but truth-The Woodster did it on May 13, 2005.

But, I digress. Joe Harvey is joining our little group and he may post frequently, or maybe infrequently as the mood strikes him. I have known Joe for a decade, and a finer person you won't find in the blogosphere. I've watched Joe in his interactions with other healthcare professionals and am always delighted to watch him in action, his care and concern, demeanor and honesty are a joy to watch as he pushes for the best in client care regardless of the "politics" of a situation or of a place.

Joe is, like me, a mental health professional, and a thouroughly nice guy. Joe is a Christian who actually practices all that he preaches. I was over to his place the other day and going in the kitchen to get a soft drink, noted a number of Bible verses scattered on the cabinet doors, the refrigerator, other places, and thought to myself how lucky I am to know this man. He is a father, the youngest of his brood of 5 is only a few months old and watching Joe hold his little one reminded me of the classic Hummel figure of the Madonna and child... except that the Madonna is far nicer looking. 04.gif

But again, I digress. Joe is a solid conservative as am I, but don't expect to see us agree on everything (though I'm frequently delighted that we agree on so much about so many varried things). You, if you are conservative, may also disagree with Joe on some things, just as you disagree with me on somethings.

Be that as it may, Joe writes with compassion, conviction, and a sense of honor and honesty that you don't often find and it is not only my pleasure to know this gentleman, but to be able to introduce you to him. When you see his first post, and it may be in a day or two or in a week or two, welcome him and expect to find a friend, for he is that kind of guy.

Two years?! Isn't it about time for a raise?

Welcome, Joe!

Woody, you greedy capitalistic pig!

Joe, I hope you're better than those other two guys.
