When something happens to which you want to – have to – respond, there is nothing like blogging. You don’t have to wait for the New York Times to run your op-ed, you don’t have to drive to a TV studio and get into make up, and you certainly don’t have to wait until your book is between hard covers or your movie hits the screens. You can blog about it unfiltered, uncensored, unedited.
I’m thinking that about 97% of the bloggers that I read and love and live for don’t have this problem. Now, I’m a huge fan of Arianna’s, but not so much of all her contributors. Let’s hope that her blog doesn’t end up being a pundit dumping ground.
