Hey, there’s a new newspaper in town – The Sangamon Star.
The Sangamon Star is to Springfield newspapers what The Daily Show is to cable TV news. Except cheaper looking and no Jon Stewart. But really, it’s pretty damn funny.
It’s also free and available all over town. I came across it tonight for the first time when I walked into the Hickory River Smokehouse (2343 N. Dirksen Pkwy) which is an awesome BBQ place by the way.
The Sangamon Star also has a blog. The Sangamon Star blog is to the Springfield blog scene what Fafblog is to the larger blogosphere. Except not as funny and no Medium Lobster.
