It's Not All Blogging

It's nice that Arianna Huffington loves the world o'blog, but let's not any of us forget that if it wasn't for the actual journalists out there unearthing nuggets of information for bloggers to into more extended stories, blogs would still be personal diaries documenting what we eat for breakfast and the weather. (Coffee. Cold.)

For instance, read Molly Ivins on Texas political corruption. It's still Tom DeLay and he's still accused of some fairly serious misdeeds, but you wouldn't know it from the media headlines. No, you have to read Texas newspapers or Texas columnists (like Molly) to know what's happening.

Somewhere out there, there's a blogger scanning all the columns and the news headlines and maybe even the televised news and posting it on-line.
