Two New Sites You Should Be Reading

Today on the Internets

Ezra Klein, one of my favorite policy bloggers, is now blogging over at the Washington Post. He blogs about health care policy, economic policy, environmental- and food-related issues, politics, and more, and he makes it all both enjoyable and understandable. (And he's cute.) Here's a good sample post: What Can Comic Books Tell Us About the Guantanamo Debate?

And Slate has launched Double X. Their description:

Double X is a new Web magazine, founded by women but not just for women, that Slate launched in spring 2009. The site spins off from Slate's XX Factor blog, where we started a conversation among women—about politics, sex, and culture—that both men and women listen in on. Double X takes the Slate and XX Factor sensibility and applies it to sexual politics, fashion, parenting, health, science, sex, friendship, work-life balance, and anything else you might talk about with your friends over coffee. We tackle subjects high and low with an approach that's unabashedly intellectual but not dry or condescending. The blog is at the heart of the site, but we also publish essays, reporting, and other features.
It's only been around for about two weeks, but it's looking good so far, and its founders include two of my favorite journalists, Emily Bazelon and Hanna Rosin.
