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.

It IS Dave Barry. And he's blogging! He looked deep in thought (humor is a serious business) so I just said, Dave Barry? And he said, yes. (Handshake.)

Exchanged two more sentences after that -- I try not to bug the "name" journalists around here (saw Wolf Blitzer at a deli yesterday, brushed against George Stephanopoulos on a stairway), but I did say I'd link to his blog to help build his readership in Kansas City, so here it is. I mean, I'm just trying to help a fellow blogger, you know. We're, like, practically peers.
