Jim Black: a blogger's gift that keeps giving

Driving home today, I heard Joe Sinsheimer on WPTF. Sinsheimer, a Democrat, has started a web-based movement calling for the resignation of NC House Speaker Jim Black, (D-Mecklenburg). At Jim Black Must Go, check out the links to Mr. Speaker's latest caper requiring all NC kindergarten hopefuls to receive an eye exam beforing enrolling in a public school. Black, an optometrist, attached the provision to a budget bill, allowing it slip through the legislative building unnoticed until now.

I would find it hard to maintain a single-issue blog, but with a subject like Black, the copy just keeps plopping into Sinsheimer's lap. I wish him the best of luck.
