Since I have been initiated into the Old Dominion Blog Alliance, time for a recap of how I got here.
In mid-October, I was reading the News Leader's website. I read a letter by my neighbor, a.k.a. Yankee Philip. A commenter was fussing at him, so I wrote that I would host his opening fundraiser when he runs for office. If Bill Ayers was good enough for Barack Obama to start his political career in his living room, then surely I could help Phil.
A journey of a thousand miles begins by reading a letter to the editor.
