Progressive Blog Alliance

I have decided to join the Progressive Blog Alliance. It is a consortium of blogs by writers who talk about political topics. Its members include people who run the whole gamut of the label "progressive" as it is understood in (presumably) the United States; that includes blogs which I agree with and respect very much, and others whose politics resemble various strands criticized in posts on this site. I'm hoping that joining can be an experiment in participating in online cross-pollination of ideas and dialogue, but use the links under the PBA heading in the side column at your own risk -- my personal favourites in the blogosphere remain under the "Interesting Blogs" heading.

The point, by the way, is that all members have that list of links to the blogs of the other members on their site. The list is centrally generated and I have noticed that even though I asked yesterday, this site is not yet on. Hopefully it will be added soon.

Welcome to the PBA. More importantly, welcome to L.A. Why on earth would you move here? We live here (Cerritos) and are seriously looking to move to the Vancouver region. Check out my blog, listed on PBA as "Left is Right". Thanks.

First off, thanks for the welcomes, Karlo and Mike!

As to why LA...my partner is a scientist who does immunology research. We are in LA so she can do a post-doctoral fellowship involving research on air pollution and allergy/asthma -- not surprisingly, LA is a good place to do that kind of work. We intend to be here about two years and then return to Canada.

Ahhh. Canada. The promised land...
