: On MSNBC’s Connected last week, I quoted a blog about McDonald’s 50th and I struggled over how to pronounce the name: EEE-ah-triss-dot-com, is what I settled on. And then I got email from the very nice blogger behind that blog. ieatrice is actually I… eat… rice. It’s even next to a rice bowl. I’m such an idiot.
But this does remind me, bloggers: When I want to link to a blog (or plug it on TV), I’d love to say the name of the blogger. But it’s amazing how many blogs don’t bother to put their names on their home pages and not because they’re trying to remain anonymous but just because they apparently assume that anyone reading already knows who they are.
As they say on NPR in letters time: Make sure to include your name and how to pronounce it…..
Spamming for Jesus
: I’ve all of a sudden been getting lots of fundamentalist religious spam, the moral equivalent of chain letters and indulgences. Oh, Lord, make it stop.
If conservatives are from South Park…
: … then liberals are from Deadwood. Or so says Matt Welch: ” Out with the mealy-mouthed PC murmuring, in with the ribald & flowery language of the American frontier.”
I’d prefer the idea that liberals live on Wisteria Lane. [via Sploid]
Next: FoxNews Friends, BBC Buddies, and Post Pals
: I keep looking for signs that it is a parody but I can’t find them. There is actually a site called Friends of Al Jazeera. Why? “Journalism is in tatters and AlJazeera is trying to bring back some dignity to the profession.”
This story has legs
: Michelle Malkin compiles links finding conspiracies in making Ann Coulter — “Ms. Right” — ook incredibly leggy on the cover of Time. I find a different conspiracy: Making her the symbol of the right would be like, oh, making Michael Moore the symbol of the left, eh?
