Radio Free Web

Rosso reminds me that the subscription wall has come tumbling down at the NY Times. It's no longer necesssary to find work-arounds to link to Krugman, etc. Murdoch is expected to follow soon with a free Wall Street Journal on-line. Can the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (free only on the NWA edition) be far behind? Probably not. The publisher seems committed.

Looking over the free Times, I did stumble on this blog item, which refers to a political scientist who says Democrats are finally -- and thankfully -- realizing the folly of pursuing the Bubba vote.

“With few if any votes to be gained — and plenty of votes to be lost for being inauthentic — Democrats finally seem to realize that cultural contortionism in the pursuit of Bubba produces little more than smiles on the faces of Republican consultants.”

Reps. Mike Ross and Marion Berry, to name two, probably wouldn't agree with this thinking.
