Knowing when to shut up:

Knowing when to shut up
: I had added to the post below regarding Iraq last night, but because part of Blogger was down, it did not appear until this morning (thus my motivation to move to Movable Type).

So I repeat myself with the addendum to that Iraq post:

: You see, sometimes it’s important to know when to shut up.

If I had something to add to the Iraq debate — in facts or reporting or perspective or wisdom — I’d add it; I’d have added it long since.

But I don’t. So I should get points for adding nothing.

For if we are not careful, weblogs will turn into catalogues of “what I think about…”

When people could publish their own web pages, they too quickly became catalogues of “my CD collection.” As if anybody should care.
