TalkLeft BackUp Site

This is a backup site for TalkLeft: The Politics of Crime. It will also allow immediate posting of updates, photos and video from my i-Phone and other devices during the Democratic National Convention.

Be sure to bookmark it now because if TalkLeft's server crashes or goes down during the convention, you won't be able to access it then to get the link.

This site was set up in 2002 and hasn't been used since, then which explains the very old archived posts. I'm keeping them for posterity. I have updated the templates, added widgets and other new things, and hope it is of value to readers during the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

To comment, you can sign up at Open ID. You may find out when you get there you already have an Open ID account. If possible, please use your Talkleft screen name when commenting so we know who you are.

I experimented with Wordpress and Movable Type before settling on Blogger. For one thing, it the TL server goes down, so would this backup site.

Comments and suggestions, from design to content, are welcome. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the comment template look like the one on TalkLeft, rather than Blogger.
