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.

Wichita and abortion

The latest Rolling Stone has an article about Operation Rescue West and Wichita's increasingly aggressive anti-abortion movement. Link is here. (Operation Rescue likes the article, by the way.)

Meanwhile, Thomas Frank's "What's the Matter With Kansas?" is #5 on the NYTimes best-seller list. Freezerbox riffs on Frank's subject matter with an analysis of what he calls "spite voters."

And one alert blog-reader sent on kudos for Knight Ridder cited in today's Progress Report from the Center for American Progress, a leftish DC think tank/advocacy group. Scroll down the "Under the Radar" section.
