Who should blog

Anybody and everybody. It's easy. It's fun. It's good.

I just discovered the Champaign County Clerk has a started a blog intended to focus on election laws over there. That is really amazing. He may be the first county officer in Illinois to open up this form of communication with his constituents. That takes real guts. Apparently, there's a situation where university students aren't allowed to register at their campus addresses. I don't know all the details, but, that's definitely a big deal. Whatever his politics are, I wish him the best and hope he's able to stick with it.

Our own Springfield and Sangamon County politicians and party leaders would greatly enhance their offices by blogging. Seriously.

The quickest and easiest way to start a blog is to grab an account at Blogger.com. It can even be done anonymously for the skittish among us. It's free, too.

P.S. If anyone happens upon this blog because of Wednesday's article in the SJR, thank you for stopping by. And, please feel free to leave comments or questions.
