Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Black coffee, Curtis, Brian and James
And Facebook, Twitter and Menno, too.
Pretty much in that order, that’s how I start my day at work.
I’ve already read both papers at home, so once I once I plunk down at the office I quickly check out local bloggers I know. I admit the list is short.
Some of you may already know them:
- Curtis Brown’s Endless Spin Cycle
- Brian Kelcey’s State of the City
- Menno Zacharias’s Policing, Politics and Public Policy
- James Turner’s The Crime Scene
There’s also Policyfrog. He doesn’t use his name, but his ID is no secret.
There’s also the anonymous Blackberry Addicts, which just resurfaced after a three-year hiatus, just in time for the municipal election and next year’s provincial election. No offence B.A., but why not just rename the blog to "Cabinet Communications."
There are a few other blogs out there and you’re more than welcome to share them here. Just keep it clean and respectful.
You can also check out other blogs to watch listed on the Free Press website.
With elections on the horizon, and a federal one maybe in the spring, the more bloggers the merrier. Even "C.C."
(Shameless plug: I have a blog, too. Camp Stephens Alumni is for anyone connected to the Y’s Camp Stephens on Lake of the Woods).
