On being talked about
In almost ten years of blogging, many of my posts have been linked and/or excerpted by other blogs (especially Progressive Eruptions), at Crooks and Liars, and even occasionally on Reddit and the redboards. But the most notable case where one of my posts prompted serious discussion from others was this one, which provoked posts (with substantive comments) from Republic of Gilead and Frank Moraes. I hadn't really expected that specific post to strike such a nerve, but in hindsight I'm not surprised. It came from the heart.
