Remember back in the day when the Public News and the Houston Press covered local politics, and alt-media names like Fleck and Simmon and Woodall actually mattered?
That seems like a long time ago. These days, the corporate alt-media rag is practically begging for someone to write about local politics:
Hair Balls is looking for a good political blogger, one who can keep up with local and state goings-on.
We're not looking for inside-baseball minutia, but we don't want broad-brush "The Other Side Sucks!!" stuff linking to Daily Kos or NRO's The Corner.
It's Internet money, so you won't get rich, but you will get a chance to have a platform.
If you're a local political blogger and want to lend your talents to a publication that once covered local politics and occasionally shook things up, shoot 'em an email. We're looking forward to reading about local politics in the Press again (or at least reading the website).
