Barcepundit reports on a massive demonstration against Zapatero’s proposal to negotiate with home-grown terrorists. There are reportedly almost 1 million people taking to the streets.

L.A. Times Blog, Take Two

Filed under: Blogging Matters,Dog Trainer — Patterico @ 9:59 pm

L.A. Observed reports that the L.A. Times Sunday Opinion section will be hosting a blog, starting tomorrow, to allow readers some direct (albeit limited and edited) input on selected topics.

There are two topics tomorrow: 1) parental involvement in their childrens’ education; and 2) Joel Stein — love him or hate him?

As a blog, I’m guessing it’s not going to be any great shakes, but it nevertheless strikes me as a positive step, and kudos to Bob Sipchen for once again being an innovator at the paper.

It “opens” at 8 a.m. tomorrow, so check back then.

Can’t Stop with the Radio
