I am pleased to see a new addition to the South Dakota Blogosphere. Well-established Rapid City blogger John Tsitrian and veteran reporter and Sioux Falls columnist Tom Lawrence have launched the South Dakota Standard.
Tsitrian and Lawrence both have provided all sorts of good writing in their independent online writing ventures. But just eight posts in, they’ve posted articles from four authors: themselves, former judge and Congressional candidate Tim Bjorkman (reprinting Bjorkman’s 2017 opus magnum on drug abuse, family breakdown, crime, and incarceration), and Rapid City attorney Jay Davis.
If each of these smart, independent observers can crank out even one article a week, they will provide South Dakotans and others interested in our fate with excellent, informative reading worth discussing.
