Let us know what you think about the changes.

A new addition to Blogside Reading

When not typing furiously in his bath, Waldo's always meandering through the blogdom, looking for new points of view. He's never understood where the challenge lies in only reading, watching, and listening to people who tell you only what you already agree with.

The Cotton Boll Conspiracy gets good marks from BNN as a conservative site (even allowing for BNN's shortcomings- as a bumper sticker in Portland Oregon said of the headbanger rock station there in the 1980s, "KGON Sucks, But It's All We've Got") and, now that Waldo's had a chance to actually read it, he comes away impressed. Very impressed.

Thoughtful, nuanced, not- apparently- shilling for candidates, and more than a little iconoclastic. Read the "About CBC" page and try to imagine the Big Swinging Conservative Blogs demonstrating that degree of actual independence of mind.

"Sounds like someone you could split a pitcher of martinis with," Waldo says.
