Welcome visitors from Daily Kos! Thanks so much to mcjoan for linking to us today. Joan, your perspective was fascinating Tuesday night at the Dole Institute's panel on political blogging. I also thoroughly enjoyed our conversation afterwards. Many thanks for your time.
For a good review of the Dole Institute panel see Joan's post and Jerome Armstrong's comments.
Now I have to sheepishly admit that until today I had not registered at Kos. I've just done so. However, I won't be able to join the conversation and say thinks "in person" until tomorrow because of the lag built into the Kos system.
Meanwhile, I am extremely impressed by the depth of knowledge about Lawrence restaurants exhibited by the Great Kos Folk. You certainly know the best places to go!
Some of you are obviously in this area, so all I can say is where the heck are you located, and when can we get together at Free State for a beer?!!!!
For those of you new to In This Moment, here's a guide to just a little of what we've been doing for the last year or so. (We were born in November 2005.)
Lawrence's attempt to pass domestic partner registry prompted a conservative lawmaker to push to ban registries in Kansas. We've been covering the story.
We've also written about a variety of other Kansas topics.
...On anti-gay, hate-monger Fred Phelps and his clan, complete with blow-by-blow battle between us and two different members of the Phelps family
...On fairness for lgbt citizens & what it's like to be a lesbian in Kansas
...On the birth of the movement to take back Kansas
Meanwhile, In This Moment writer Nancy Jane Moore looks at the United States and the world from her vantage point in Washington, D.C.
Writer Pamela K. Taylor gives us the progressive Muslim perspective
