Notes on the Atrocities Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

I'd like to draw your attention to a couple of posts on my local blog.
Yesterday I interviewed a Democratic candidate for the state legislature. He hails from a small town in rural Southern Oregon, and isn't likely to get much attention, even in the local press. Whether or not my blog qualifies as actual journalism is debatable. But this isn't: with corporate media dominating broadcast channels (particularly local radio), there aren't as many venues for this kind of discussion.
It pleases me enormously to think blogs may help fill an important role in the democratic process.
