The world of blogging
So I’ve apparently been dragged into the 21st century and am now a blogger. It’s new to me and a little strange, and feels like a responsibility of undetermined weight — sort of like waking up in Vegas with a wedding ring you weren’t wearing last night.
Besides the regular Thursday roundup in the paper and online, I’ll try to use this space to post regular updates on political news, events, and occasionally gossip, so please feel free to send me your tips, questions and feedback. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call my desk at (714) 966-4626.
