Tin Shop Tartan - Randolph County Alabama's Own Snarky and Surly Scot Gets All Native

Blogging from the suburbs of the Tin Shop community, Captain Plaid brings Progressivism, and a share of Quixotic angst, to the ridges and hollows of Randolph County, Alabama. Hardly a booster yet rooted here enough to fight, Plaidsters can perhaps find like cause in trying to build local solutions to global concerns. Education, environment, economy, entertainment, engagement ... Trust the Tartan!

The Anniston Star - Local Progressivism

While I expect many locals are avoiding any newspapers or media that doesn't suit their world view with another good section not very motivated beyond keeping up with NASCAR and American Idol, I grew up reading The Anniston Star. Solid resource that continually ranks as one of my favorite sources. The 24th brings us an Editorial entitled "A postmodern presidency". If you don't understand "postmodernism", borrowing from Foxworthy, then you might be from Randolph County. Try this resource. Print media takes work to follow and I continue to think that hyperlinked blogging in many ways can be superior. Understanding complex issues beyond the talking points and spin is critical to be an informed and competent citizen. Peace ... or War!
