Another reason to blog

Homeschooler bloggers help get the attention of editors of the AZ newspaper over this cartoon from Feb 13.
Fitzsimmons called the response unprecedented and credited the speed in which news travels over the Internet. "(Nearly) 100 percent were furious; a handful, five, maybe four, understand my perspective,'' he said. Typically, he receives three to five e-mails or phone calls on any given cartoon. Blogs, which are online journals, depicted the cartoon as though it were "a gratuitous jab at home schooling,'' Fitzsimmons said. "Folks were not aware of the context,'' he said.
In our own little corner of the sphere we can make a difference.
