Political blogging and the road trip

    While I enjoy the thrill of political bloggery as much as the next person, and check in with Joshua Micah Marshall and the vain, young, trash-mouthed skank more commonly known as our beloved Wonkette regularly and with interest and pleasure, I've run across an interesting bit of work quite by accident (I was looking for information about super shrimpy atomic clocks, if you must know).
    The Beeb online sent a couple of expat American reporters (Richard Green and Kevin Anderson) out on the road to blog and um, write stories "from the heartland." After reading a couple of Election Road Trip pieces that focused nicely and personally on matters such as healthcare and religion and politics and liking them, I found myself gravitating to Kevin's blogging. The stuff reminds me of how well you can tell The Big Story by telling stories about people.
