I am happy to report that Foreign Policy is going to reward the best commenters on this blog with complimentary FP All Access subscriptions. Also, guest columnists will get the same backstage pass.
David Rothkopf, the czar of all the FPs, tells me he is willing to do this because he recognizes the collaborative nature of the blog. As I’ve said before, the comments often are more illuminating than the posts. So I think it is good to reward the best commenters.
You pretty much know who you are, but if you wish to be formally designated a "best commenter," please send me an e-mail.
