Hold on to your hats kids, Narco News blew back onto the internet and nothing is going to be the same again. The updated home page has a great new look and the addition of the neutral side bars on either side are much more restful for these overworked eyes.

Of course Al didn't stop there, he also threw a stick of dynamite into the blogosphere and blasted out a new space he's calling the Narcosphere. He taken the Dkos model of participatory journalism and exploded it into a new form that promises to be revolutionary. It will be interesting to see how such a large group of contributors will get along and what effect not allowing anonymous posting will have on the equation. I have to say, I'm intrigued and impressed.

Dan Feder has employed his usual genius in making the site easily navigable and I already love the early content. Charles Hardy's account of arriving in Caracas as a missionary priest in 1985 is exquisite and Al posted this translation of an amusing Spanish news item.

It's good to have the Narco News team back. I've missed them.
