Rob Morse wrote up Kos in today’s Chron:
On a modest street in the flats of Berkeley there’s a little yellow bungalow behind a shabby fence. It’s one of those places you expect to find a pit bull, but instead you find a bright young mayor of a city of about 70,000 liberal activists, writers, kibitzers, kidders and some folks who clearly have a lot of time on their hands.
The city that Markos Moulitsas Zuniga runs isn’t named Berkeley. It’s called Daily Kos (“Kos” was Moulitsas’ Army nickname) and it’s a city in the metaphorical sense, reached by mouse and keyboard. …
