For a while now I've talked about using this blog as a placeholder until we were ready to launch a version of Streetsblog for Los Angeles. Well, the time for that launch approaches and my first two posts for Streetsblog are now online. Given my obsession with electoral politics, it should be no surprise that these posts are looking at the Republican and Democractic candidates for president.
Once the launch of LA Streetsblog occurs, all of the old posts from here will be available on the Streetsblog server. While the posts will still be here at StreetHeat, this site will see far fewer updates than it does now...StreetHeat will basically be my personal blog and cover such exciting topics as who I want to be president, bad personal experiences on the bus and maybe pictures of my cat riding a bicycle.
LA Streetsblog will have the same kinds of posts that you see here only with less of my opinions and better spelling. I promise not to misspell Wendy Greuel's name again.
Until then, Street Heat will remain open for business. As always, please keep me in the loop/send me story ideas. So far, I haven't turned a story idea down. And of course, keep reading. Nothing makes a writer's day than an active comments section!
