91. Jack Kavanagh
If you follow California politics, you likely peruse Rough & Tumble, an online daily aggregation of political stories and comment from newspapers, blogs, TV, magazines – you name it. Jack casts a wide net and it shows: Virtually everyone in the Capitol checks R&T’s daily selection of political coverage, which he posts before dawn, then updates during the day. Jack, a veteran journalist and former TV reporter, doesn’t make policy or run campaigns, but the people who do keep a close eye on R&T as the political aggregation landscape gets ever more crowded. He has a following in D.C., too, and he regularly posts links to Beltway stories that have a California connection. Amazingly, Rough & Tumble, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is a one-person operation. So when does Jack sleep?
