I called attention the other day to a couple of startlingly - though by no means atypically - offensive posts by the conservative blogger Jim Hoft, whose blog "Gateway Pundit" has been hosted at First Things for quite some time now. Now comes this comment from Joe Carter, FT's Web editor, explaining that Hoft's blog is about to leave FT's Web site. One hopes this is a sign of good things to come.
