Leo Laporte

The leoville blogs have changed syndication feeds.  I did my best to switch them over, but the urls he gave were wrong, in the mean time other users created duplicate accounts here on livejournal so, by the time I figured out the mess, I tried to fix the three main feeds.

leo_blog  The main atom feed that shows the whole article is: (which is what I orginally tried to get fixed over)

leoblog_ee  Is now a dead feed that is no longer in use.  It was created with a faulty rss_2.0 feed by someone who didn't bother to email livejournal support to have the original switched over.  By the time I figured out the right url, it was already being used for another feed so now this feed can't be corrected.

leo_blog_ee  is the original rss feed, again originally created by someone with the wrong url.  I requested it be changed over to the correct url and should now be functioning.  The difference between this and leo_blog is that the above shows the whole post, this skims.

Leo Laporte used to be a main fixture of techtv, his entries usually give tech news and whatever neat things are happening in his life.

New feed: MysteryPollster blog

mysterypollster is a syndicated feed from the new blog It's a blog by a professional political pollster:

I am a Democratic pollster, but my aim here is not to try to spin the latest poll results in any particular direction. There are many other voices in the blogosphere that perform that function admirably. My hope is to provide a bit of straight shooting – the same role I play for my clients – with respect to polling methodology and what the polls can and cannot tell us about the state of the campaign. I also hope provide a bit of criticism and fact checking on the good, bad and ugly of surveys in the public domain. That’s criticism in the formal sense, less about attacking and casting blame than about evaluating and providing an authoritative though, admittedly, subjective opinion.
