WE INTERRUPT THIS BLOG

...to bring you an important news bulletin from the Convention.

We'd also like to do our corporeal corpulent corporate duty and tell you that these bloggers are actually blogging from the Convention:

Adam Smeltz -- On assignment for Knight Ridder's Washington Bureau, 22-year-old Smeltz will report on trends in youth voting during the election campaign both in print and through a blog. He debuts with a "Life of the Parties" blog he's writing from Boston at the convention. Observing that only 42 percent of those between the ages of 18 and 24 voted in the 2000 presidential election, "P. Diddy, Ben Affleck and other big names pushing for an historic turnout of young voters have a serious task ahead of them."

Daniel Rubin -- A staff writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer, he will blog on life outside the perimeter of the convention. Beantown is his home town, so Rubin will be out scouring the streets to "see how well the DNC set-designers have hidden people like Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and Michael Dukakis."
http://drubin.blogspot.com/

Michael Klein -- A Philadelphia Inquirer columnist who covers people, places and things, he will be doing just that at the convention. Klein notes: "I'm not as interested in the raw politics as I am in what and who surround it. Celebs and politics do mix, and they will do just that in Boston from Saturday through Thursday."

In addition to these viewpoints, two Knight Ridder newspaper reporters will be bringing the hometown angle back to their readers through their blogs.

Alan Bjerga: Washington correspondent for the Wichita Eagle, he will blog to inform voters, entertain readers and "link to relevant information, which is going to have heavy Sunflower emphasis (and isn't it ABOUT TIME someone did that? Hoo-ha for Kansas) ... to make this a must-read for the Kansas-connected."

Tom Webb: Washington correspondent for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, his eyes will be "peeled for All Things Minnesotan, including the 91 Minnesota delegates and alternates hoping to promote the Democratic message, assorted protesters, a couple of Minnesota Republicans hoping to undermine the Democrats message, corporate sponsors, political donors and various others." Think of his blog as a Webb log.

And if indeed Adam Smetlz, shouldn't he try deoderant?

Judi, you've italicised the WHOLE PAGE. Is that on purpose?

And a new poster is first!

Although Smeltz would have been funnier than Smetlz.

* Fumble fingers in my excitment over a first post.

Oh - That's better.

Rats....That would be excitement, not excitment. I just can't handle the pressure anymore.

Question for you veteran posters (I can't qualify as a bloglit yet, can I?)...Do fumble fingers ever go away?

Marvin: It'll go away eventuually.

dont nobody pick on howard zinn. he's my cousin. no kidding. so you be nice.

Welcome to The Blog, Marvin. Just washed your hands and can't do a thing with them?
( grin )

Maybe that explains why you're a Mets fan, queensbee. (Just kidding, really.)

Wichita, Kansas? Dave, the last time Kansas voted for a Democrat for President was when? Never? FDR?

As I've heard, and been know to say: "It's my frist day out with the new fingers!"

JUST AN FYI IN CASE YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW. TO GET INTO SITES THAT REQUIRE REGISTRATION AND YOU DON'T WANT TO REGISTER, GO TO BUGMENOT.COM.

GIVE 'EM HELL UP THERE DAVE! (THOUGH, SOUNDS LIKE IT PRETTY MUCH IS HELL ALREADY!)

so if it's your first day out with the new fingers, do they have 'that new finger smell?'

laura:

As the Bard once said, "A finger by any other name would still smell as sweet."

I didn't say he was a good bard. And fortunately he only said it once.

Marvin - that was in the Unabridged version of the Bard's works... when he was trying out various concepts....

"A fart by any other name would still clear the room"

"A burp by any other name will still get you sour looks from people"

"A dog by any other name will still smell like the poop he just rolled in"

etc, ad infinitum...

And no, the finger-fumbles, dropped words and (gasp) the dreaded double post stay with you always...

i will stick by my hapless mets.

** I'm cornfused ** all those links Dave gave us were to blogs, right?

But....but....you couldn't post to any of them! That's not really a blog....is it?

queensbee, good for you. If there's one thing I hate it's a fair weather fan.

many blogs don't allow readers' comments, but that's only because, unlike this one, their readers have nothing important to say.

dave attracts a particular level of erudition.

Hello. Long time lurker here.

Nice to see they're all at blogspot. I love Blogspot. Nice choice, reporters.

Oh no, another Jessica, welcome to the blog. I will add an "R" to my name so that no one gets confused.

Dear Dave, If you had one what would you do with it?

Jaymes
