Anyone who knows me well, knows I love to talk politics. Which doesn’t exactly endear me to a lot of people. I know, I know, politics, like religion, is one of those topics you should never discuss in polite company. And in the midst of such a divisive political season, I’ve personally witnessed some heated confrontations that probably weren’t appropriate for the setting we were in. To that, I say, a little personal discomfort is worth the all important process of thoroughly discussing issues that affect each of our daily lives.

We just launched a new blog on NBC5.com that is a great resource for enhancing that political discourse. Steve Rhodes (pictured, right), the founder of the popular Beachwood Reporter blog and Web site,  is now writing an NBC blog entitled Division Street. The name is an homage to the Studs Turkel book about the divisions in American politics, as well as a metaphoric nod to the real Chicago street that encompasses many of the diverse neighborhoods that define our community.  

Steve posts several times a day on the blog, and tries to spur discussion on important local, state and national issues.

Check out my interview with Steve discussing his new blog.
