Hot tea and a good paper

Maybe newspapers need tea parties or pamphleteer meetups (with bloggers).

Where all politics becomes local, the need for national leaders is
less important and issues of great importance do not become a
personification of them.

I might add that the success of the movement in returning power to
local communities and states might save more than few local newspapers.

  1. Maybe a few of the Tea Party protests should be directed at local TV stations and newspaper hqs. They’d sit up and notice then.

  2. That’s a thought. We’ve got four people on the scene of the Knoxville one and I noticed the Tennessean was live blogging and streaming the one in Nashville. We’re noticing!
