Hometown Hero

From the home of the Calgary Flames comes a blog that reminds us once again that it is not the politicians or marketing machines who rule the blogwaves, but rather the do-it-yourselfers. CalgaryGrit's political analysis is amateur in the best sense of the word. It shows the ability of blogs to showcase an opinion without having to pander to corporate or editorial ideologies as journalists in the past have had to. Although CalgaryGrit has an admittedly liberal slant to it, its conversational style realizes the dream of the blogosphere as a political realm for the everyman.
