I just added Piedmont Publius to my blogroll.  I should have done it some time ago. Authored by Greensborian Sam Hieb and brought to us by the John Locke Foundation, Publius is doing a great job of covering local stuff.  (One suggestion for improvement: it is way too difficult to leave a comment over there, [...]

No good deed…

Poor Ed and Amanda.  They were just trying to do something nice for ConvergeSouth and Scott Rosenberg last year. That was before the video editors at BetterBadNews had their way with it all.  Hilarity ensues.
