Just a minor note . . . I discovered a new blog called BlueSunbelt out on the internets today (via Kos). Good to see more action on the street.
It seems to me that it will take some hard work to make a super-regional blog fly. Hell, we have our hands full just trying to pull North Carolina together around a progressive agenda, imagine the challenge of herding twenty or so states. In any case, I wish them luck. More is better.
