Mickey Kaus with some thoughts on what blogging brings to web publishing:
An emailer recently called a recent posting of mine "a half-cocked, paranoid theory that popped into your mind in the middle of the night." He said it like that was a bad thing! ... Isn't half the point of blogging to publish half-cocked paranoid theories that pop into your mind in the middle of the night? ...Some would argue that their blogging is fully-cocked, but I've never bet a blogger who thought he was the straightest shooter in the land with no sense of humor...yet.
