Governor Paterson Finally Gets One of Them “Weblogs”


Governor Paterson has hopped on the blog train with Straight Talk, Straight Answers, which would be far more interesting if it were called Crooked Talk, Crooked Answers, but we suppose that sort of thing doesn’t fly in Albany. The governor and senior administration officials say they will use it to “respond directly to the questions, concerns and suggestions posted by New Yorkers.”

First posts address take-home cars for employees and double-dipping. So far Straight Talking is just a fancy way of saying yawnsville. We can’t wait til he starts griping about the mother-in-law and drunkenly live-blogging weekend exploits… because that’s what blogs are for!

It’s a work in progress, though: The “About” section includes the following text:

This is an example of a WordPress page, you could edit this to put information about yourself or your site so readers know where you are coming from. You can create as many pages like this one or sub-pages as you like and manage all of your content inside of WordPress.

“About” really is the hardest part, isn’t it?
