Molovinsky Hits BNN's Top Twenty

Molovinsky on Allentown is a pithy, hyper-local, blog that pretty much confines itself to Allentown and its city government. A critic of myopic government, author Michael Molovinsky has endured many slings and arrows from more established local bloggers. Some have reputedly encouraged, back channel, a boycott of his blog.

Try as they might, this effort to muzzle Molovinsky has failed. He joined BNN's ranks very recently, and is amazingly rated 13th most influential political blog in Pa. That's pretty good for a dude who only rarely strays from Allentown. Our ideologies are completely different. In fact, we completely disagree about a number of things, including the best choice for the vacancy on Lehigh County's Board of Commissioners. But Mike has taught me one thing, if nothing else. Conservatives do care about the less fortunate among us. He demonstrated that pretty clearly with his riveting LANTA posts.

Congrats, Mike!

Mr. Molovinsky is also a talented photographer. Congrats to MM. He gives readers a much needed perspective on city govt. that we will never find in the Morning Call.

... or in other blogs. I disagree with Michael as much as I agree, but we're better off with his views than without them.

I heard a rumor that MM is voting for Obama, any truth to this?

Bill said...

Props to MM!

I don't totally agree with any of the Blogs that I read, but I appreciate the different perspectives and view points. I always thought that examining our own perspectives in relation to what others put forth make for better informed opinions.

Mike has made some good points about the merchants of downtown Allentown and the lightning fast sale of the infamous parking lot (that I park in every week day) by the Allentown Parking Authority. By the way, they have taken no steps to inform me of the sale even though I have rented a space their for several years.

Bill, Maybe they'll give you a sweetheart deal on one of the condos.
