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.

Interesting -- after checking the nuts-and-bolts of the Blogger software, all comments are posted as "anonymous" unless one has a Blogger account. Kinda tough to figure out who's who if everyone's Anon. Which means that people either have to create their own Blogger account -- which is free, but still the sort of insidious marketing technique this blog would prefer to eschew -- or include ID in the post, which is cumbersome. This is a case for migrating from Blogger. Prof. Polley has written me a nice tutorial on how to do that, but first I'd like to know if anyone out there may know if there is any way to post to Blogger with a handle _without_ creating a Blogger account.
