The other side

And that, in the end, is the dismal fate of blogging: it renders the word even more evanescent than journalism; yoked, as bloggers are, to the unending cycle of news and the need to post four or five times a day, five days a week, 50 weeks of the year, blogging is the closest literary culture has come to instant obsolescence. No Modern Library edition of the great polemicists of the blogosphere to yellow on the shelf; nothing but a virtual tomb for a billion posts - a choric song of the word-weary bloggers, forlorn mariners forever posting on the slumberless seas of news.

There's that sort of blogging and then there's this sort.

HA HA!

How the mainstream media hate "The Blogs" so much! I guess it has nothing to do with how for the first time Blogger's hold them accountable to their own words! And call them out on occasion!

Let them suffer! SQUEAL little piggy SQUEAL!
