Picks o’ the Day

March 27, 2012

As part of my work for Progressive Congress News (and because I’m a big ol’ news & political junky) I consume a huge amount of media every day. Some of that I write about here or on other blogs; but at the end of the day, there are always a handful of great pieces that made an impact on my day. I’d like to share those with you. So here goes: the inaugural edition of Sandi’s Picks o’ the Day.
