Ninth State is the 2005 brainchild of Tom Hogan and Ryan Lirette. This blog comments on current news stories, regional, national and international, from a New Hampshire perspective.
Although their categories range from automotive to science, the majority of the blog topics are really political in nature. The articles are well-researched, and concise. If the scenario of a reported article changes, they revisit the post with updates and footnotes.
They are working to become a major force in the blog community, and I think they are well on their way.
