After some conversation in navajo's New Day diary today, I thought it would be cool to start a group for Kossacks here in the Houston metro area, whether you're inside the beltway like me or out in the suburbs, exurbs, or nearby communities. I know there are at least a few of us, and I'd be willing to bet there are a lot more than a few that I don't know about.
This group will have a few purposes. It would be nice to organize some kind of Houston meet-up, and a group would be an easy way to do that. But joining the group doesn't obligate you to come to a meet-up--the group will also be used to repost Houston-related diaries and just keep in touch in general. Other urban areas have Daily Kos groups, so why not Houston?
Here is the group. If you want to join, let me know in the comments or send me (or the group itself) a Kosmail. And, of course, feel free to follow.
I look forward to (hopefully) getting to know a few more people from the area. I'm originally from northwestern Pennsylvania, where we had a very small group of (three) Kossacks organized, so it would be nice to get at least a small group organized here in Houston. Hopefully this takes off!
