Nicholas Kralev has a story on p A11 of the March 11 Washington Times, “Stare blog solicits views on hot-button issues: But department will not take public opinions into account,” link here.

There is another story “Unlikely friends blog for peace” by Joshua Mitnick, link here.

The blog is called “Life must go on in Gaza and Sderot,” run by two men at opposite ends of Gaza. The URL is this.
