      Hi everyone,

      I'm sure you're all already on too many mailing lists, but I'd like to
      invite you to a new one I'm starting that I think is really important.
      As I've gotten more involved working on watchdog.net, I realize
      there's quite a large community of people working on parsing what
      might be called political data -- everything from SEC filings to
      Census statistics. And, unfortunately, these people don't talk to each
      other much, leading to a lot of duplication and confusion.

      I'm hoping to fix that with a new list, called poliparse, and if
      you're interested in this stuff I invite you to sign up here:


      As part of it, I'm creating this wiki page listing the variety of data
      sets we deal with and the different kinds of people on the list:


      Please join the list, take a look at the wiki page, and invite anyone
      else you think might be interested to join the list as well.

      Thanks so much!
      - Aaron
