Democracy in Yonkers

The NY Times has an article about a Yonkers based site that focuses on local politics. Some choice quotes:

"He's done a lot for the city in terms of keeping people aware and shaking up City Hall," said Karen G. Edmonson, president of the Yonkers branch of the N.A.A.C.P. "Before, people would just whisper things."

"What we have here in Yonkers is the need to express," Mr. Aris said. "It's a reaction to being repressed for so long."

Not bad. This guy started his own damn paper. And he's got a radio show, too. If I could turn this into a full time gig that would be one thing. But a radio show? I'm not sure Alan or the Mayor would like that.
