By reader request, I’m putting up a new open thread for readers to post news tips (you can also send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and CC iprtwo at googlegroups.com).
I’ll just copy and past the text from the previous thread explaining what this is about:
The moderators here at IPR have noticed an influx of links within the comments which, while relating to the political world, do not necessarily contribute to topical discussion within their respective threads. We understand that the contact account can sometimes receive too much news to get everything up here, or if it does makes its way to the front page it does so with a significant delay.
We will make this thread an open place to share links to any stories you find particularly interesting or newsworthy. Please only post links in other articles which contribute actively to the discussion in that respective thread.
In personal news from Paulie, I’m back from my latest road trip (more about that soon) and will be posting a lot of articles at IPR again….but I’m not sure for how long, as I hope to get more petition work again in the near future.
