Boblog -- With all the blogging about Bob Greene -- Mickey Kaus has a nice roundup with links, his take, and why the blogosphere has the truest analysis -- nobody's posted anything about why it really matters that Greene's flame out coincides with the era of the 'blog: there's nothing stopping him from starting his career resurrection tomorrow. All you need is a blogger account and a dream.

Note to Bob: For your first posts, you might tackle the is-it-mortality-or-just-a-good-case-of-randiness question.

By the way, count hublog among those who can't believe Greene was fired for having sex with a consenting adult.

Listing -- It's some statement on the world we live in when the Herald runs an article listing the names of the people reading the names of the people killed on 9/11. Has it gotten that meta?

I don't know where the article appeared in the print version, but it was prominently linked on the Herald home page at 10:00 this morning.

Mitt's inspiration -- Mitt Romney's big, bold idea du jour is not only trivial -- he proposes an overhaul of the budget-busting clean elections fund -- it's stolen ... and stolen from one of the least-credible management teams ever assembled.

Under Mitt's proposal, ten percent of the money regularly-financing Candidate X raises would be put in a fund available to clean-election-restriction-abiding Candidate Y. Sound familiar? It should. It's a ripoff of baseball's laughable mechanism to cure what ails the major leagues: the luxury tax.
