John Fritchey starts a blog. Who will be the next?

Representative John Fritchey has set up a blog: Dome-icile. Its' here. Dome meaning underneath the Capitol Dome, presumably.

This is a chance for people to regular people to really engage in governing because anyone can get the ear of a legislator now. So progressives, quit reading the New York Times and complaining about the federal Republicans running the show, and start figuring out how we can make life better here in Blue America -- then tell Fritchey what you think.

Who will be the next legislator to set up his or her own blog? I know of a few regular readers who ought to have their own . . . .

I'll be checking Fritchey's blog regularly. What other House members would have an interesting blog? One of the Latinas. Lee. Patti Bailey. Smith. Schock. Cultra. Sacia. Dunkin. Flowers. Molaro. Burke. Lindner. Boland...

Regarding this entry my DJW: I was actually thinking along the same lines yesterday evening, when I saw the news about Rep. Fritchey's new blog.

For some reason thought, I was under the impression that Rep. Fritchey was a Republican; I just saw that that is not true. I think that those of us who have been blogging for awhile should perhaps consider offering our services to legislators and candidates who we support, so that they can more-easily maintain governmental and campaign weblogs.

By the way, I think I may have added Mr. Johnson-Weinberger's weblog to my blogroll recently; I recognized his name from the discussion groups related to UIUC, like those that our friend Mr. Krause was involved in.
