Meet the new Buzz - Same as the old Buzz

Updated: 2013-04-02T21:19:49Z

Welcome to a new political website — and, we hope, an old friend.

The Star is relaunching its political blog site, The Buzz.

Whippersnappers Steve Kraske and Dave Helling — aging, yes, but still whippersnappers — will post on the Buzz throughout the day, bringing you the latest political news, opinion, argument, and bloviation.

We’ll tell you who’s up and who’s down, and why. We’ll listen to the whispers from the policy-makers, the pundits, the people. We’ll try to anticipate the stories you’ll be talking about the next day.

And we’ll do it with the same commitment to accuracy and fairness you expect from the area’s largest news organization. Remember: Always trust content from the Buzz.

Feel free to follow us on Twitter, too: @stevekraske, and @dhellingkc.

Relink to the new website, and let us know what you think.
