Long-time observers of the progressive blogopshere are likely aware of Barbara O' Brien and her blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, AlterNet, and elsewhere. She was a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.
Now, Barbara has a new project - Mesothelioma Blog - where she is dissecting the Health Care Bill, the public concern of health care, and related issues in health care in the United States. The topics include health reform, public health, and asbestos contamination.. Check out Mesothelioma Blog today, post comments, subscribe and bookmark and spread the word.
O'Brien is a fine blogger, but the apparent rule in her new location that every entry contain a link to mesothelioma - even when the topic is essentially unrelated, such as fraudulent lawsuits against fast-food outlets - presents an awkwardness that becomes almost comical after a few posts.
Barbara's blog has good well thought out entries, a good read for anybody.
