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.

First impression

I made it a point to check my e-mail in the first hour after the debate to see who was beating who in the inevitable avalanche of e-mail I get as a journalist.

In one hour I received exactly 50 e-mails. Forty-nine were of the "Kerry won because ..." variety. None called Bush the winner. One guy was annoyed that the candidates were allowed to take notes on the podium.

Draw whatever conclusion you wish from this.
