Another Soapbox

I’ve put up my first posting at Sunshine State Progressive Bloggers.

SSPB is the brainchild of Kenneth Quinnell who writes T. Rex’s Guide to Life, and a lot of the credit for getting this idea of a community of leftist bloggers together here in Florida goes to him. He’s been meeting with bloggers around the state; no small feat in a place where the state capital is 700 miles from Miami and he has a full-time job and a family. As anyone who’s tried to organize anything — much less a bunch of lefties scattered over the landscape — knows, he’s got his work cut out for him, but so far he’s gotten a lot of good responses, and I encourage you, whether you’re in Florida or not, to check us out and blogroll us. There’s a lot that will be going on here in Florida, not the least of which is the campaign of the Republican senate candidate, Katherine Harris, which is already showing signs of cracking up, and the open governor’s race to decide who will replace Jeb!

We’ll provide the details; bring your own popcorn.
