David Manes, a Harding University junior, is one of three national finalists in a scholarship contest for political bloggers.
Go to his blog, Political Cartel, and look for the link to vote for David.
1) All politics is local. He's a Democrat, up against a Republican from Yale.
2) In a quick scan of his blog posts, I note the phrase "ridiculously low severance tax."
Good enough for my vote.
