I think it's about time that I add a pair of links to the sidebar here...

It'll be a matter of days but I think that I will add both C-Span and Illinois Channel to the sidebar links. It's about time and there are moments where I enjoy C-Span. I don't enjoy Illinois Channel as much because I rarely get to see it.

It's mainly because in Chicago at least it's only on Saturday mornings for a very brief period on Channel 21 of the Chicago Access Network. At least there's the website because unlike C-Span programming isn't streamed online. You can only get certain segments.

In any event I blogged about C-Span over the summer. They had this program about the US Capitol in June I believe. It was one of the many specials that I have seen on C-Span over time.

BTW, there's a nice blog list over at I wonder who determines what blog goes there. I see that one of my favorite video blogs, The Steve Garfield Video Blog is over there. So Mr. Garfield is doing something right. Anyway I have a few suggestions of my own to be put up there at C-Span.
