Somewhere, over the rainbow, a blog is born. A blog for Kansas. A blog for America. A blog by a reporter with a difficult-to-pronounce last name. But most importantly, a blog that is AMERICA'S ONLY PLACE dedicated to the vital intersection of politics and Sunflowers. The Heartland gods nod in wise approval.

Long, strange trips to be continued

First of all, the numbers are now in, and THANK YOU for making this the most-read Knight Ridder Democratic National Convention blog of 2004. (Dave Barry excepted. Can't compete with Dave.) Onward and upward for the GOP.

Other 'n' that, this space is on hiatus for one day to honor the memory of Jerry Garcia, who passed away in San Francisco this day in 1995. Also, high-level discussions are underway about revamps to this blog. And people wonder why I mutter all the time ...

Jack Straw from Wichita, shot his buddy down.
Dug for him a shallow grave and lay his body down.
One man gone and another to go,
My old buddy you're movin' much to slow ...

-- J. Garcia, 1943-1995.
