Richmond, Va. – James Bacon, a veteran columnist, policy
blogger and magazine editor, on Friday launched The Wonk Salon, a new blog
providing a daily roundup of public policy research coming out of the nation’s
top think tanks. "We monitor the publications of nearly 100 think tanks
every day so you don’t have to," said Bacon. "It’s all about saving
you time — and turning up useful studies and reports that you might otherwise
miss." The blog also features a forum where site visitors can dissect and
debate controversial research.
