ASV Morning Preview/Bugs Bunny Votes
I thought I would spend this morning writing about Bugs Bunny's birthday. Some silly quotes, list a few favorite episodes, open up another discussion about how great Bugs was. But what I've discovered about blogging is this: it bestows obligations upon you. Unlike, say, a newspaper reporter, you can't just write an opinion piece and be done with it. Instead, you have to review all the comments and emails and then respond accordingly, sometimes making one opinion piece drag on over the course of several days. Which is fine with me; we bloggers are nothing if not opinionated and given the chance, we'll go on forever about any given subject. I can't speak for all bloggers, but I know that if I print something that becomes a hot subject (generating a lot of comments and trackbacks), it's a safe bet that within all those comments and pings there will be dissenting opinions. Which in turn obligates me to counter those opinions, or at the very least, back up my own words. And sometimes those comments derail into another subject entirely, which (I feel) obligates me to address that subject in a separate post. And so it went yesterday and last night. There was the abortion t-shirt post which ended up with someone implying that because I'm an atheist, my moral opinions are worthless. There was the Ted Kennedy post, which some people just did not get. So, which do I address now? Well, as it's 7:17, neither. So just consider this a preview of later today (hey, if Lileks can do it, so can I). In addition, I'll be writing something addressing emails I've received concerning the RNC credentialing system. However, I would be remiss if I didn't spend at least some time wishing Bugs Bunny a very happy birthday. Here's something for you to mull over until later - Who would Bugs vote for in this election and why? Silly? Yes. I figured I'd get the silly quotient in early today, as the rest of the day will be a bit heavy handed.
