For those of us who have been a part of North Carolina's political blogging scene for more than a few years, James Protzman stands as a leader in the political blogging movement. Long before newspapers paid journalists to blog, James, along with Lance and John, provided a megaphone for the rest of us. Today, we are celebrating his return to full-time blogging.
HA! Just kidding. Today, James's friends and colleagues are gathering to celebrate his retirement from paid work. I make the distinction because blogging is hard work too...we just don't get paid to do it!
