Admin note: Blog redesign & update, plus 10 weeks of Election 2014 coverage starts next Monday

Readers may notice some changes to the blog. Based on the feedback from last May’s reader survey as well as comments emailed to me recently I’ve decided to update and revamp the blog. The redesign should help people in finding information and navigating the blog. If you have questions of comments, feel free to email me

In addition I wanted to also note that starting next Monday (August 25) and for the next 10 weeks the blog will be dedicated to looking at the ballot items on for this November affecting the courts. Stay tuned.
