you're looking awfully green today
I'm not going to point any fingers (links) at you all, but suffice it to say you sound both jealous and whiny.
BWG has been blogging for four years. I've been reading him on and off for about two of those years. He's funny, insightful and is a kick ass photographer. The CNN interview used just 1% of what BWG said. Why don't you go explore the other 99% of what he has to say before you start crying foul? Start here, for instance, and you will see a collection of photographs from Hong Kong that is simply amazing.
Not all blogs are about politics and news. The blogosphere, as we are prone to calling it, is just that; a sphere. Think of it as a planet. Now look at your little space on that planet. Small, ain't it? There is more to this sphere than just warblogs or newsblogs. It's a wide, wide world out there and it's nice to see someone besides the usual pundits and movers and shakers getting recognition.
Congrats on your fifteen minutes, Big Guy. It's well deserved.
