There's a (relatively) new leftie politics & culture blog on the web: My Fleece Vest. Online for about six months now, they're a sharp crew, with a smart hook on the news. They also conveniently sort their stories by category into US politics, international politics, eco-news, science & tech, and the squishy stuff--including satire.
Jer, thanks for the shout-out. Hope everything's going well with you.
well, if this site is to be judged by spelling errors of posters and commentators alone, it's below average!
