L.A. Times Political Blogs
California political blogging suffered a serious blow with the news that the LA Times' terrific Sacramento reporter Bob Salladay took an early buyout from the newspaper and has given up "Political Muscle." Political Muscle was a must-read for me, especially after the Sacramento Bee put Dan Weintraub's blogging (formerly at "California Insider") behind a subscriber wall.
The good news is that the LA Times has now begun a new national political blog that appears to have great promise. Let's see if the Times finds someone to take over Political Muscle.
