So Long, Farewell: Today We Close Pam’s House Blend – A Look Back. It’s been real.

By: Monday July 1, 2013 6:00 am

The Blend has been a virtual coffeehouse where vigorous (but polite) political expression was encouraged on myriad topics including LGBT issues, race relations, the religious right, and gender issues. This outlet for commentary and original reporting had a great run that has been gratifying to produce and hopefully enlightening for readers. As we close the [...]
