It was hard for me to pick "favorites," so I instead went with the most relevant stories that I think accurately reflect my style of blogging. Hope that's OK.
1. Since the person on last week's cover of the RFT attacked me by name and then refused to respond after I pointed out why her attacks were completely off base, I'd like to share this response to her criticisms: http://stlactivisthub.blogspot.com/2010/02/why-dana-loesch-wont-respond-to-me.html. I think it's a pretty thorough takedown of the kind of punditry Loesch practices.
2. I put a lot of research time into this post detailing the background of John Burns, the spokesperson for the anti-public transportation group misleadingly labeled Citizens for Better Transit: http://stlactivisthub.blogspot.com/2010/03/who-is-cbts-john-burns.html.
3. Finally, just to show that I'm not all about flame-throwing advocacy, I wanted to include a couple posts where I collected stories about my friend Melanie Shouse, a health care activist who had written posts for my blog and recently died of breast cancer. I complied the stories at http://stlactivisthub.blogspot.com/2010/02/for-melanie.html and http://stlactivisthub.blogspot.com/2010/02/more-links-about-melanie.html.
