Here’s some pretty neat activity from Rep.-Elect Jared Polis of Colorado. He’s blogging the freshman orientation and has posted their entire schedule over at ColoradoPols. It’s interesting to see the group of experts that provide perspective to new members of Congress. The schedule he posts is of a Harvard sponsored orientation event. In the comments thread, in response to praise from a couple of Republican commenters (Polis is a Democrat) thanking him for posting this, Polis writes:
Thanx LB and Haners. Hopefully more elected officials will realize that real people communicate this way and that the erstwhile trolls and sockpuppets of election season disappear come election day yielding to more civil but nonetheless spirited discourse.
