Welcome aboardI'd like to take a moment to welcome Mike Faulk, the "Mountain 'publican," to the blogroll here at the World. Though his blog is relatively new, Mike's activity in GOP circles certainly is not. I welcome such wisdom and deep political insight to the roll of superior weblogs to be found in our sidebar, and I hope Mike visits us often and is an active commenter.
I also want to take a moment to note that we have added a new section to the sidebar-Other Blogs of Interest. This section will be dedicated to non-political blogs that are just as well worth reading as any of our American and Tennessee public interest fare. The first entrant in that category is Jocelyn Hainsworth. I first encountered Jocelyn's work on the CBC website some years ago when she wrote a regular column there called "Life On the Farm" about her family's life on 1,000 acres in Redvers, Saskatchewan. When her stint with CBC ended, she started a blog to continue writing about her experience-one which I read with great interest. Many of our Tennessee readers who are involved in agriculture, agribusiness, 4-H, FFA, and/or are, like us, members of the Farm Bureau, might find Jocelyn's insights interesting, especially since we don't hear much about farming North of the Border in this part of the U.S. Welcome aboard, Jocelyn
