There is a bill in the House of Representatives that, if passed, would mandate a 72-hour period for everyone (citizens and representatives) to read a bill before it can be voted on in Congress. Gee, what a FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC idea!
Yours truly will be participating on a panel at the next meeting of the Louisville chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists this month. Even though three of us are political bloggers, this particular discussion will be on blogging, not necessarily on politics. It promises to be quite interesting and I'm looking forward to it. As I understand it, these meetings are open to the general public as well. Here's the announcement "Just Who Are Those Bloggers, Anyway?" The Louisville chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists invites you to join us for dinner and a panel discussion featuring four blogging experts. Our panel consists of: Nabil Echchaibi, a graduate of IU-Journalism's PhD program, and now a faculty member at the University of Louisville. Nabil currently is working on a project (a book perhaps?) that looks at blogging and network society in an international context. Mark Hebert, the well-known and respected newsman at WHAS11 in Louisvi
