Updating the Blog Roll

The big news in the local political blogosphere is A Big Fat Slob has started posting again after a 4 year hiatus and he started off with an instant classic If Trump Wrote the Gettysburg Address

The sad news is that's the only addition to the blog roll as many of our former bloggers have either quit or now put all their energy into Facebook. I can understand why. I deleted a bunch of sites because they haven't been updated in years.

Of those remaining:

Potential 2032 Democratic Presidential nominee Omeed renamed his blog Firouzi Files . He likes Joe Biden.

John Cole Cartoons is one of the best in the business.

NCFE touches on politics and has observations on life, the universe, everything plus he is a fan of  Hunter Thompson. Give me ether.

2 Political Junkies keep  us up to date on Pittsburgh and national politics. They keep Jack Kelly honest.

Lehigh Valley Ramblings is one of the best local political blogs in the country. Bernie does a lot of original reporting that results in some very entertaining pissing contests.  No pot belly pigs were harmed writing this post.

The Lu Lac Political Letter is regarded as the gold standard of local NEPA political blogs. The Yonk has built it into something of a media empire with his appearances on TV and radio.

The reluctant Democratic Committeeman Another Monkey has been busy shooting the moon.

Big Dan flies the false flag.

Keystone Politics is a progressive Philadelphia blogger that supports the Guv and bike riding.

The author of Susquehanna River Sentinel is a local product that now lives in the Philly area and is one the best sources of information about the River and the environment. 

 One of my first friends in this blogging thing was a guy from New York who helped me win some awards that don't seem to matter much now. Simply Left Behind  is the only site outside PA on the blogroll.

The Pennsylvania Progressive is like me. Slaking off. 

Above Average Jane is another one from the early days of hobby bloggers.

I still can't read Posts From The Fringe because of the background.  

Michelle doesn't post on her blog often she really hit on this one

What happened to Jennie Monica? 

Pittston Politics stopped posting over the summer but he has threatened to come back.  It looks like Joe has given up on the blogging thing in favor of posting right wing talking points on Facebook. Guns good, Rebel flag good and abortion bad.

 The Keystone Report looks similar to Drudge but  it's must visit everyday because Chris gives us all the headlines and his hair looks mahvellous. 

 Then there is the Blogfather. My inspiration and mentor. Wilkes-Barre Online probably got rid of the worst Mayor in the the history of the city. After his mission was complete he seemed to loose  his focus and now blogs infrequently at Circumlocution.

Thank for the nod, Ben. Still out here...but have redirected some of my blogging energy to two family history blogs; The Raykovitz Chronicles and The Williams Chronicles. Hope we can grab another beer or two someday. Don
