A couple of blogkeeping notes:
– Some of you may have seen the new look and functionality of other AJC blogs, such as Jim Galloway’s Political Insider blog. Sometime in the next few weeks, I’m told, my blog will migrate to the new system as well. (The change is being made to accommodate new software that works better on mobile platforms such as I-Pads, Kindles, etc.)
That means you’ll have a brand new URL to bookmark (all the previous blogs and comments will still be available in archives). It also means that — prepare yourselves — commenters will be required to register in order to post at the new blog. As you can see on Jim’s blog, that doesn’t mean that you have to post under your real identity, but you will have to register an identity to post. I’ll let you know more as I learn more.
– On Monday, Feb. 25, I’ll be delivering what has become my annual “Real State of the Union” speech, followed by Q&A, at Seven Stages Theater in Little Five Points. (Information here). It’s free, and starts at 7 p.m.
However, we usually have a full house, so if you’re interested in coming, you should get tickets ahead of time. The event is sponsored by Women’s Action for New Directions, or WAND, and will also feature the witticisms of my friend Andisheh Nouraee, co-author of “Americapedia: Taking the Dumb Out of Freedom.”
