    I have yet to make that special place.  I am an emotional blogger- I write to share my ideas but also to organize my thoughts for myself.  So I post as soon as I write something instead of picking the best time of day.  My daughter reads the blog and it is a way to communicate what I am thinking.  She signed up recently.  I should send you some of her cartoons- she is very talented- working on an MFA in cartooning and is working on a graphic novel about Appalachia.  

    I am ambivilent about the whole "recognition" thing.  I am involved in a small technology start-up with local angel investors, teach 12 credits a semester and volunteer a lot.  I keep my politics to myself a whole lot (hence the blogging as an outlet).  But I could speak about the football issue, I hope, and would like to cross-post this one if you will have it.  

    I did a little rewrite just now.  I really do see how people get to accidently plagiarize, but since I teach some writing classes, I also know how to rewrite to avoid that.  I corrected my football errors from the 90s thanks to an quick-witted alum who posted earlier.  How do people send this in?  dkos lets you cut and paste the html code as the diary editor- and that would be useful for reporting if you use the same code.

      Well, know that this very well should have been on the rec' list, its excellent writing. and it should really have been on the front page, just to give people a taste of how Appalachia is run by coal/energy (and I think is an intersting mircrocosm of the US/oil...but thats another story)

      If youd shoot me an email at, we'll get you set up with getting this on the AV blog. I also think that you should try and submit this as an op-ed in local papers, or even in national ones. OHVEC, which it sounds like your familiar with, might also be interested, and we might also be able to use it as a piece in the Appalachian Voice newspaper.
