Updated: Obama's Hebrew Blog

Earlier today I passed on the news that according to Israel's Ynet news, Barack Obama today became the first US presidential candidate to start a Hebrew blog.

But an Obama aide, Sam Graham-Felsen, has since been in touch with my colleagues to say the new site is not an official one. "Some supporters made it on their own," Graham-Felson writes. "Obviously any official blog would be on barackobama.com and I would know about it." Oy vey, the perils of blogging. My apologies.
