Another Cool Blog

I've come across a fairly new blog that covers a very intriguing niche of political activity: Initiative is a Good Thing. Its pseudonymous author, Helen Langora, describes it as "Petition drives, ballot access, citizen initiatives: A conservative covers the news, the controversies, the key players, and the inside stories."

One of the stories the blog is covering right now is TABOR, the "Taxpayers' Bill of Rights" initiative, here in Maine.

Initiative also delves into the meta-issues of citizens' petitions and related matters, not just the particular initiatives that are currently in the spotlight. There's a good post on "astroturf" campaigns. Despite being a self-described conservative, "Helen" doesn't mind giving kudos to the Democratic Underground.

This blog falls into the category of "Why didn't I think of that?"
