Richard Burkard shouldn't feel like the lone ranger. I wasn't invited, either.
Turns out that the Georgia legislature had "Blogger Day At The Capitol" (tip: The Blog Of Columbus, Georgia). Burkard wasn't invited. Me, neither. Of course, it would have been hard for me to take off work and make the drive to Atlanta. So, I stayed in Columbus, working at the salt mine, doing whatever it is that company I work for does.
Sure, it was for more political blogs with a focus on Georgia. So, I guess that it's not surprising that they left this little blog off their invite list. I do get into politics on occasion. Mostly saying how stupid Democrats are. But The Blog Of Columbus, Georgia does focus on Columbus, and politics in Columbus. And that's in Georgia. Barely. If the river shifted, Alabama's population would go up 250,000. But still...
I'm thinking the poker-playing reverend and I -- plus some other bloggers from the area -- should have our own get-together. There are plenty of bloggers in Columbus, Phenix City, and the Chattahoochee Valley.
We could have our own Blogger Day At The Capitol. In fact, we could hold two: one in Alabama and one in Georgia ... and not invite either state legislature.
