    Bizarre. America is under attack! Wait, *was* under attack! Wait, we outsource the management of our own embassies? Wait, we vicariously employ people whose managers won’t let them go home when they’re literally dying? Wait, the blogosphere is the only information source to report this?

    Allow a shameless link to my own blog. Frank Rich of The NY Times, yesterday, essentially called blogs nothing more than cheap opinions. I employ a bit of the Wittgensteinian method to show why he’s wrong. And this article linked from AAE makes the case better than I ever could.

        Oops. I see why that was confusing. Meant *this* article linked from AAE–as in *the news story you’ve never heard*. It makes the case for the power and legitimacy of the blogosphere better than my own blog on this topic.

          I don’t think I was confused. But the link still doesn’t work.

        But I should add, you and Kelly Jolley teach Wittgenstein better than anyone. Not ass-kissing. Just truth-telling.

        OK. I’m the one who’s confused!

          Maybe I’m getting confused too, because the link still doesn’t work.

          Damn. You can just click on ‘MBH’–my user name. In the second blog from the top, I link to and paraphrase from Aristotle vs. Rand. Hope you don’t mind.
