All of the archives will remain here for the time being, but all new content will be at The Raw Story at angryblacklady.rawstory.com. The URL is not working quite yet (it should be up this evening), so for now you can find our new posts by clicking this link or by heading to the front page and looking for the ABLC tab at the top.
UPDATE: The URL is live! Click here. As a result of my move, all comments on this blog are being moderated.
