Farewell Ted Stevens

Looks as if Alaska's Senator Ted Stevens has been defeated in the recent election. Two weeks after the fact, the vote count is finishing up.

Relief, mostly because had he been elected, all sorts of scenarios involving Sarah Palin elevating herself to his Senate seat would have been in play. I suspect we have not heard the last of Governor Palin on the national scene, but for the moment, her 15 minutes are up.

Don't look now but Time Magazine is polling folks to see who should be Time's Person of the Year. Obama's #1. Palin's #3.

#2? Tina Fey.

Is this a great country or what?

Hi there,

We've begun a new blog in an attempt to create one location where blogs by people who live in Hartford proper and write about Hartford are gathered.

We found you either because we read you, we found you through a google search, or you were linked to another blog that we read. We linked to you because we like your blog.

We've found that there are plenty of really good blogs out there devoted to Connecticut (or even Hartford) politics and news -- but we couldn't find any one place where you can find links to Hartford bloggers that blog about life in Hartford (among other things, obviously. No hard rules.)

Our plan is to link to and provide an RSS feed (when available) to blogs of people who are: residents of Hartford proper (none of that "and environs" stuff) and who write about life in Hartford (culture, events, art, news, politics, nonsense, observations, most anything goes) as part of their normal posting (it doesn't have to be every day or every week). This week our write-up links to A Bird in the Hand, Ladies in Waiting, Live in Hartford, Mira Hartford, Real Hartford, The 40 Year Plan, and Weekend Party Update.

We will, on a weekly basis, summarize and link to Hartford-specific topics written by the folks on our blogroll. We took a first stab at it today, so you can check it out and get a sense of what we're looking to do.

If you have a longer post you would like posted in full, just let us know.

If you know of another blog that looks like one we’re looking for, we'd love to hear about it from you. This was just our first shot at it -- we expect and hope the list will grow.

If you don't want us linking to you, etc., feel free to tell us to buzz off. (But that will probably eliminate any shot you had at being invited to Thanksgiving it our place.)
