The History of Possum Comitatus
Possum was once a group character comprising of 4 economists that haunted the politics and economic forums of the intertubes for a number of years. In April 2007, 3 members of the Possum collective moved on to pursue new and interesting flamewars in non-political areas, developing a new group character specifically for that purpose.
Being the sole remaining Possum, during the process of deciding what to do with the character I became not only an accidental blogger, but an accidental poll analyst. As a result of the popularity of the blog, to this day the Possum Comitatus character is and shall now remain the pseudonym of a single writer; Scott Steel, a 34 year old from Northern Bayside Brisbane that has a keen interest in politics and econometrics.
