You know, I'll bet more people see THAT than the phone book.

"This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need. My name in print. That really makes somebody. Things are going to start happening to me now."
-- Navin R. Johnson

From Lynn Sweet's column in your Chicago Sun-Times:
Just as candidates for office test the waters before making their bid official, I've been making an exploratory run myself -- as a blogger. I've been blogging for a few weeks, posting on a variety of subjects. I'll make an "official" announcement later. Thanks to Austin Mayor, Zorn at the T, Archpundit, Daily Kos, CapitolFaxBlog and others for taking notice.
Ms. Sweet is most certainly welcome.

But my inclusion on that list of bloggers just cries out for an analogy -- but which one? Jimmy Nicol and the Beatles? Susan B. Anthony and Mount Rushmore? Gummo and the Marx Brothers? Willie Lumpkin and the Fantastic Four?

In any case, I hope that being acknowledged in such lofty company doesn't raise the expectations of either of my readers.

Hey! I resemble that remark!

(Saw that in the dead-tree, and couldn't believe it. I may have to now check out her blog.)
