It wouldn’t be a series about blogging without focusing on what some would consider a statewide pastime and hobby here in Alabama – politics. One of the largest segments of blogs maintained in Birmingham are political in nature and none seem to garner more attention than Doc’s Political Parlor (& Home of Lawn Mower Repair). Every day the folks over there are a great one-stop source of information either revolving around the state house in Montgomery, local town and city halls and even occasionally a couple of mentions from the national media.

For many of us local web workers (and many influential community leaders and politicians) a morning would not be complete without getting a rundown on what’s going on in the state from Doc’s. This morning’s daily news digest includes links to stories about a newly formed PAC, a story in The New York Times, and a year in politics review from The Brewton Standard.
