As you can see, we’ve updated the Republic to a shiny new theme. (And new content management system — WordPress, just like in town.) It’s got an RSS feed, a pocket calendar (over there on the right), a lantern, and practically everything else you might want. Oh, and you can comment on entries now. But fear not; old links to the site should not break.

Thanks to Mike Hilborn for setting everything up and figuring out how to hammer WordPress into my old URL schema.
