  • I recoil from the word "journal," as the latte-snortin', tattoo-wearin', self-absorbed slackers of yesteryear applied this perfectly acceptable word to the drivel spewed into their dogearred coffeehouse notebooks. Now one can successfully lobby me into disliking the term "blog" with the simple argument that the very same yahoos that used to journal now blog.

    However, "blog" is a funny, ugly word. It's kind of a lexical pumpkin - short, squat and bumpy. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for pumpkins.

    I will join my spleen to yours on the topic of journalist (as in professional media types) who somehow want to aggrandize "blogging" (*giggle*) with a "New Journalism". Doesn't this sound like the same kind of braying that we used to hear about the "New Economy?" What ill-conceived nonsense. Luckily, the noise will quiet soon.
