Here at Dreams Into Lightning I generally write about stuff I feel comfortable writing about, either because I have personal knowledge about it, or a strong interest in it, or just strong opinions about it. But there are a lot of things - especially domestic, regional, and social issues - that I don't write about, even though they're important.
Enter Missiongirl. Missiongirl is a woman I've known for over eight years. She's lived in the Bay Area of California all her life, born and raised in San Francisco's Mission District. This is a personal friend of mine, for whom I have the utmost respect. She is tremendously intelligent and knowledgeable about social policies and "real life" in California. She can tell you what's right - and wrong - with social programs, what the Governator is doing wrong, and more. I don't want to tell you any more than that because I think she should tell you the rest herself. She is not blogging yet, but she tells me she will be starting within a couple of weeks. But don't wait: go ahead and mark her blogspace on your browser now: it's Missionpundit. There's nothing to read there yet, but when there is, it'll be well worth your time. Keep an eye on that spot.
