Promo.:  Fresh blog:  I might have had a small part in its making, but I won't be so self-indulgent as to explain all the particulars here (especially because I have worries that the style sheet is all screwy for, many browsers.).  Just wanted you to know about it. I've been told it will begin filling up with entries later tonight or tomorrow. says this about the project, purpose(s), all of which, for the most part, extend the efforts and initiatives of the C's progressive caucuses:

We are a coalition of individuals, interest groups, and caucuses who feel that language, writing, and literacy are inseparable from issues of social justice and public policy.

Sorry not to respond to your earlier email about the new progressive blog. I finally got there yesterday and it looks good. There were a number of postings from C's resolutions.

I'll be interested to see if the C's activists turn out to be bloggers. C's has been slow to discover the format.

Bumpy uptake, g r a d u a l discoveries of network dynamics--I'm okay with that. And I'll be interested in what takes shape at the PT blog, too. As I contributed to setting it up, I kept hearing myself emphasizing linking to others and reading other blogs to make entries conversant. Comments will help, though, as they help all bloggers. And in light of the election results, lots of folks are thinking about overdue changes in the place where liberalism and public discourse converge.

nice work on that blog, Derek. I have high hopes for it. As for C's being slow to discover the format: C's is old. Blogs are young.

Hey, I'm older than C's and I blog. : )
